The next generation of chemists, biologists, mathematicians, computer scientists and more are off to a "SMaRT" start at Northampton Community College (NCC), thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation.
This is the second time the National Science Foundation has awarded NCC a federal grant that pays for the education of students who are preparing for science and technology careers. The SMaRT Scholarship provides funds to help with tuition, book costs, and other expenses. It also provides leadership development, mentoring opportunities and other academic and career support for eligible students pursuing Science, Math and Related Technology (SMaRT) majors.
The 2012 SMaRT Scholars are Nathan Altemose, Kasheena Collins, Atalie Correa, Samuel Cruz, John De Padua, Bret Gittings, Shane Hodge, Thea Mantle, Eric Pires, Debra Ross, Romio Samman, Julli-Ann Silver, Kevin Slifer, Jordan Thomas, Charles Wallace, Laquan Williams, Eric Wolak, and Kate Zarriski.
