DAYTON, OH—Riverside Research, a not-for-profit company primarily serving the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Intelligence Community (IC), offered nearly $50,000 in scholarships for the third consecutive year through agreements with Dayton-area colleges and universities.
Scholarships were awarded to seven students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines. Clark State Community College (CSCC) and Wright State University (WSU) awarded two scholarships each for the 2016-2017 school year. Riverside Research funded three scholarships for the University of Dayton (UD) in support of their Minority Leaders Program. The scholarship recipients are: Michele Cabell (UD), James Foster (CSCC), Noelle Jacobs (UD), Lauren Rivera (UD), Lauren Rura (WSU), Brittany Woods (WSU), and Jessica Worsham (CSCC).
“Riverside Research originated at Columbia University 50 years ago, and we have since been strongly committed to supporting STEM education,” said President and CEO, Dr. Steven Omick. “Our university partnerships and community outreach efforts are built upon developing a strong, sustainable, and innovative technical workforce.”
In an effort to expand their STEM scholarship program, Riverside Research plans to establish similar agreements with colleges and universities in the National Capital Region where they have had a presence since 1970.
