University Honors College - The Honorable mention

Posted by Tim on March 1, 2018 in Competitions, Honors College Scholarships, Honors Program Announcements, Scholarship Opportunities, Stress Relief

Dr. Marie Dellas,’70 PhD (GSE) and ’67 MS (CAS), in order to pay tribute to her parents, Theodore A. and Katherine C. Dellas, has created a $4,000 scholarship to be awarded to an Honors Scholar matriculated in the Department of Biological Sciences and pursing a Bachelor of Science degree program or the Bachelor of Science in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology degree program.

Creative thinking and behavior have always interested Dr. Dellas since she was a graduate student working towards her PhD at UB.  Dr. Dellas’ intention when creating this scholarship was to reward students who practice and apply creative thinking.

The scholarship will enable the recipients to continue their education and perhaps address new concepts or ideas in the biological area that may eventually lead to outcomes beneficial to society.

Guidelines for applicants:

The recipient must be a junior or senior majoring in Biological Sciences or Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.  The recipient must also be a US citizen and preference will be given to a student of Greek descent. Preference will also be given to a student working on an innovative and novel research project.

Candidates must submit three letters of recommendation. Applicants must also include an original essay in support of their expertise or knowledge and how they aspire to make an impact in that particular substantive area.  The essay should describe the student’s goals and how they may expect to contribute to their chosen field in a substantive way and cite relevant or specific examples of situations in which the recipient succeeded in reaching a significant goal(s) in the past.

This scholarship may be renewable for a junior awardee if the recipient meets all the above mentioned criteria.

All submissions must be in electronic format, preferably Microsoft Word documents and/or PDF files.

Deadline for applications is Friday, April 13, 2018.  Applications and letters of recommendation with the scholarship name included in the subject line should be emailed to:
