The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS) will be raising money to support the Millennium Scholars program on Giving Tuesday, slated to begin at 6:55 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 26, and lasting through 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 27.
The college aims to raise $10,000, which will help fund one Millennium Scholar in the 2019-20 academic year. The first $5,000 in donations will be matched 1:1 by an anonymous donor.
The program that aims to improve diversity and opportunity in STEM fields began in 2013 at Penn State, and EMS joined in 2016. Read a story on our inaugural Millennium Scholars and watch a video on our Millennium Scholars.
