The Scholarship Challenge is a day where the Mercer team meets with students to show their campus, their labs and technology, and give them an opportunity to meet faculty and students. The team uses a design problem or a test of math skills to help them make scholarship recommendations. Students do not need to have applied to Mercer – this event is open to any high school senior!
The process is very simple:
1. Students should go to the web site and apply for the November 11 event. The address to the student application is http://engineering.mercer.edu/scholarship .
2. Students fill in a short web form with their contact information and some background on their academic interests. Applicants are asked to share the name and email address of a teacher or counselor that the Mercer team can keep in touch with.
3. From there students will be contacted with details about event and scholarship opportunities.
The Saturday event on November 11th will include:
- Welcome breakfast and registration;
- The scholarship challenge (a math and language test or a media design problem for Technical Communication) in the morning -- no calculus background is required;
- A parents’ program occurs in parallel with the scholarship challenge test which provides information about the admissions and financial aid processes;
- Engineering laboratory tours are hosted by our faculty and students;
- Lunch, afternoon campus tours and social time to talk with other participants, faculty and admissions counselors
Feel free to contact the event coordinator, Dr. Scott Schultz at (478) 301-2840 or via email to Schultz_sr@mercer.edu with questions you might have.
