Applications for the NDSU Development Foundation Steinhaus-Rhinehart Scholarship are available at Student Financial Services in Ceres Hall 202. Students with a senior standing as of fall 2015 can apply for the $800 scholarship until the Feb. 27 deadline.
The endowment was established in 1994 by Mabry C. Steinhaus in honor of her late husband Edward A. Steinhaus, an NDSU alumnus, and his parents, Alice Rhinehart-Steinhaus and Arthur A. Steinhaus. It provides scholarship assistance to students in the College of Science and Mathematics or College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources who are majoring in a biological science –animal and range science, biochemistry, biological sciences, biotechnology, biotic resources science, botany, crop and weed sciences, food sciences, food safety, horticulture, microbiology or zoology— and who plan to do research and attend graduate school in the area of biological science. Students must have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or greater.
Edward Steinhaus grew up in Max, North Dakota, and graduated from NDSU in 1936 with a bacteriology major. He earned a doctorate from Ohio State University in 1939, focusing on bacteriology with a strong interest in entomology.
A committee of faculty from each college will monitor applications. The recipient will be selected by mid-March.
