The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) Lang Science Program will offer a scholarship opportunity (The Scholarship) to all Lang Science Team students who satisfy the requirements outlined below. The scholarships will be available to undergraduate students for use at accredited two-year or four-year colleges or at accredited post-secondary vocational schools (alternatively called college, school or institution).
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the AMNH Lang Science Scholarship Program must:
The scholarships will be up to $2,000 each. Awards are one-time only and are not renewable.
The Scholarship may be used for tuition, fees, books, supplies, or other required educational support expenses as determined by the student and/or institution.
Awards may be used for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in September.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the American Museum of Natural History. Payment is made in September. A check of up to $2,000 will be made payable to the student’s institution and mailed to the student’s permanent home mailing address.
Financial need will be considered in determining the amount of each award. Potential recipients who do not demonstrate need (or who do not provide financial information) will not be eligible to receive an award but may be asked to apply again in the following year (should they continue to meet eligibility guidelines).
The award is intended to be last-dollar and not reduce other scholarships or grants. It is intended that all applicants who meet eligibility requirements and do not have 100% of their postsecondary expenses covered by other gift aid (scholarships, grants, and other awards that do not need to be paid back) will receive an AMNH Lang Science scholarship. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
