KSI Scholarship


WiSE and KARL STORZ Imaging (KSI, local medical device company) are offering a ~$5000 scholarship to one UCSB student with another scholarship from KSI going through Los Ingenieros at UCSB. This scholarship is open to all UCSB students with a 3.5+ GPA (no citizenship, major, or academic level requirements) but preference will be directed towards those from underrepresented groups in STEM, those actively working to improve our campus community (not limited to WiSE), and/or those working/studying in areas related to KSI's work! If won, the money can be applied either directly to tuition/fees or can be used separately for personal expenses (we'll work with you to satisfy what you need as best we can).

Email your application to ucsb.wise@gmail.com.
