Academic Investment in Mathematics and Science (AIMS) Program

All AIMS Scholars have a unique opportunity to strengthen their academic skills and to increase their likelihood for academic success in college.  They will develop professional leadership skills required for advancement in mathematics and the sciences.  

The AIMS Program requires study leading to a bachelor's degree in STEM related fields or teacher education with majors in these areas.  Scholars should plan to enroll in AIMS Seminar I (AS1030) in the fall and AIMS Seminar II (AS 1040) in the spring.

The AIMS program has two scholarship packages with distinct requirements.  The AIMS Standard scholarship is traditionally awarded to women and students of color with STEM majors.  The AIMS BOSEF scholarship targets Ohio residents majoring in the following majors: chemistry, physics, biology, geology, environmental science, applied mathematics, engineering technology and with career goals related to renewable energy.

Part of your success in college is dependent on the relationship you create with faculty mentors and academic advisors.  The AIMS Program is designed to promote and strengthen these relationships.

Note that the deadline for applications to the AIMS program for the 2017-2018 academic year is JANUARY 15. Applications submitted after that date will not be considered. This is much earlier than in the past due to changes in the administration of scholarships at BGSU so please make a note of this earlier application deadline. We cannot make exceptions to this application deadline this year.
