These scholarships are made possible by the Frances L. and Edwin K. Cummings Memorial Science Research Endowment. Scholarships fund students' research in the natural science and mathematics fields, and strong preference is given to applicants from groups that are underrepresented in the William and Mary student body. Applicants applying for this scholarship are asked in the application to explain how they qualify as underrepresented. The link for the online application can be found on the main CC Summer Scholarships Page. All other application components are the same as general Charles Center Summer Scholarships. Applicants must be sure to select "Cummings Scholarship" on their online Charles Center Summer Research Funding Application, but are encouraged to also select all scholarships for which they are eligible.
