JOHN B. AND IDA SLAUGHTER ENDOWMENT IN SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, AND THE BLACK COMMUNITY

The John B. and Ida Slaughter Endowment in Science, Technology, and the Black Community, named after former UMCP Chancellor and engineer John Brooks Slaughter and his wife Ida, was established to foster increased minority participation in the fields of science and technology.

The Endowment sponsors a yearly John B. and Ida Slaughter scholarship intended to encourage students to apply scientific and technological knowledge in solving the complex problems facing the African-American community. The scholarship covers in-state tuition costs and is renewable up to three years based on satisfactory academic progress. Applicants will be judged on academic status, grade point average, SAT score, a thoughtful essay, and a letter of recommendation.
