Goodnight Scholarships

The Goodnight Scholarships office is home to two scholarship programs, the Goodnight Scholars Program and the Goodnight Transfer Scholars Program.

In addition to full-tuition scholarships, both offer comprehensive student development programs designed to develop scholars into leaders within the STEM and STEM-education fields.
