Science Education Scholarships
Paul E. Klinge Scholarship

The late professor Paul E. Klinge began his career as a high school biology teacher before he became an IU faculty member. In honor of his many years of service, his friends endowed the Paul E. Klinge Scholarship for undergraduates planning to become science teachers or pursue other scientific careers, or to returning students focusing on science education as part of the Transition to Teaching program.

Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement. Financial need will only be considered in the event of a tie between two applicants.

Depending on the number of scholarships awarded, students will typically receive between $3,000 and $5,000 per year toward their IU education.
