Molecular Imaging Corporation Endowment

Program Type: Undergraduate/Graduate

Scholarship Deadline: Thurs., 03/26/2021 - 11:59pm (graduate application)

The Molecular Imaging Corporation benefited greatly from the support of Arizona State University. The company was founded in 1993, and the founders strongly believed that ASU was instrumental in the development of the company and wanted to say thank you by creating this endowment to support students. When the Molecular Imaging Corporation was sold to Agilent Technologies in December 2005, the principal investors decided to make gifts to support students in the Department of Physics in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Arizona State University, Tempe campus.

ASU undergraduate physics majors shall be full-time students with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00. Financial need may be considered in the selection of undergraduate scholarship recipients, but it is not a requirement. Some recipients may be chosen solely on the basis of merit. For undergraduate scholarships, preference shall be given to students involved in undergraduate research.

ASU graduate fellowship recipients must be degree-seeking doctoral students who are enrolled for a minimum of six hours and who have a minimum GPA of 3.50. Financial need will not be considered in the selection of graduate fellowship recipients.

The amount of this scholarship is an estimated $900. The number of scholarships and fellowships shall be determined by the program committees of the Department of Physics.

Application must be received by midnight on the day it is due, and include:

  • Transcripts of all relevant work (unofficial copies are acceptable).
  • A brief statement, explaining why you should be considered for this scholarship, include any career plans.
  • A letter of support from your research advisor. If you're a first year student and have not secured an advisor, a letter from one of your core course instructors is acceptable.

Please submit all materials online. Applications (and required materials and letters) received after the deadline will not be considered, and a new application must be made for a later year.

For undergraduate students, please contact Morgan Texeira with any questions.

For graduate students, please contact Araceli Vizcarra with any questions.
