Scholarships and Research
Scholarship Information and Applications for summer 2014
Complete applications for the scholarships offered through the School of Science, Engineering and Health.
Dr. Ray Crist Scholarship (Application Form)
The scholarship is in honor of Dr. Ray Crist. Dr. Crist taught numbers of Messiah College students the art and methodology of scientific research. Students from Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, or Nutrition and Dietetics Departments are invited to submit research proposals for this Scholarship. Research will typically be conducted during the summer or the following academic year. Research settings may include Senior Research, Department and College Honors, Independent Study, or non-Messiah College research environments. Regardless of research location, all proposals must be sponsored by a Messiah faculty member. The scholarship is granted at $500.00 per semester.
Paul and Elaine Wengert Endowment for Humanitarian Service Award (Application Form)
This award was established by Dr. and Mrs. Wengert in June 2005 to support student participation in cross-cultural, humanitarian service intended to relieve human physical suffering. Any student majoring in a discipline of the School of Science, Engineering and Health is eligible to apply for competitive funding for as much as $2,500 to participate in a qualifying project. Such projects must focus primarily on providing for basic life-sustaining needs such as adequate medical care, food, shelter, clean water, sanitation, etc. Students are required to propose projects in collaboration with reputable agencies/institutions with ongoing initiatives.
Steinbrecher Undergraduate Summer Research Program
This program was established by Dr. Leroy and Mrs. Eunice Steinbrecher in 2003 to support collaborative experimental research between students and faculty. These “heads-on, hands-on” research experiences are essential to our School’s efforts to offer premier undergraduate health and science programs. All students and faculty from the School of Science, Engineering and Health are eligible for support from the endowment as long as the research is experimental and collaborative in nature. Some preference will be given to students majoring in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, nutrition and dietetics, and pre-med/pre-health. Students from environmental sciences and the Departments of Health and Human Performance and Nursing students are eligible via two paths: 1) some research studies in such programs are experimental in nature and health related – e.g. exercise physiology, and 2) these students are also eligible for participation in qualifying projects outside of their major.
