Dr. Madhu N. Mahadeva Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship was established in memory of Dr. Madhu N. Mahadeva, professor of biology at UW Oshkosh from 1968 to 1991. The scholarship is intended for a high-achieving female student with a high grade-point average in her chosen science major of mathematics, biology, microbiology, chemistry or physics/astronomy. Recipient must be a full-time undergraduate student with a commitment to a career requiring rigorous education in the sciences. Preference will be given to applicants with an interest in pursuing advanced study, research or leadership roles in areas in which women are traditionally underrepresented. Applicants must have between 60 and 74 credits and must have earned a minimum 3.5 grade-point average in their major. Financial need, based on an essay, may be considered only to differentiate candidates who meet all other criteria. Students graduating in the current academic year are not eligible to apply.
