Moravian College Scholars in Mathematics and Computer Science

MCS2 Program

2014 Online Application

Summary

The Moravian College Scholars in Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS2) Program provides scholarships to students who transfer to Moravian College to complete a bachelors degree in mathematics or computer science, or a bachelors degree in a STEM field along with a minor in mathematics or computer science. Selected students are awarded scholarships of $5,000 per semester ($10,000 annually) for up to five semester at Moravian.

During the summer prior to their first fall semester at Moravian the students will have an opportunity to participate in a Summer Integrated Research Program. This 10 week summer program starts Memorial day weekend and continues through the first week of August. The summer program provides students a $1500 research stipend and free on-campus housing while they engage in a research project with mathematics and computer science faculty. The summer program also includes a tuition waiver for a course only open to the MCS2 participants and a personalized orientation to the Moravian College campus and community.

While at Moravian, MCS2 scholars will meet regularly---both individually and as part of the cohort---with faculty mentors. In addition to faculty mentoring, students will be supported by peer mentoring, career education, internship opportunities, and additional summer research opportunities.
