The UTSA College of Sciences was recently granted $640,000 by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to create a scholarship program that caters to the needs of economically underprivileged students interested in pursuing careers in biology, chemistry and physics. The university will use these funds to create the Facilitated Access to Scientific Training (FAST) scholarship that will award up to $10,000 a year and provide degree guidance to students. The scholarship specifically targets students in the Prefreshman Engineering Program (PREP).
The Student Government Association (SGA) at UTSA prides itself on being the voice of the student population. Despite the SGA’s goals of advocating students’ needs, their 2013-2014 budget says otherwise.
