Eight incoming Harvey Mudd College freshmen have been named 2011 President’s Scholars.
The President’s Scholarship Program is a competitive, full-tuition program for highly qualified students from traditionally underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Program recipients come from diverse backgrounds and include women, ethnic minorities, students from rural areas and first-generation college students.
This fall, eight incoming first-year students will join the program:
Created in response to the College’s Strategic Vision to recruit a diverse range of students, the program aims to expand the nation’s pool of highly skilled professionals as well as to develop leaders in the science and engineering workforce. The program also helps to improve HMC’s ability to compete with other top-ranking colleges and universities for talented students.
The President’s Scholars Program is sponsored by HMC in conjunction with support from individual and foundation donors, as well as corporate support from companies such as Beckman Coulter and Southern California Edison.
