The Thinking Scholarship program was created to acknowledge and reward those students that have gone above and beyond in their time prior to attending UAT. Scholarship awardees must also demonstrate the mission, vision and values of the University. The awards are named in honor of prominent thinkers in our community: Dr. Edward de Bono, Dr. Fritjof Capra, Dr. Margaret Wheatley, Dr. Michio Kaku, Ray Kurzweil and Dr. Lynn Margulis.
Thinking Scholarships are awarded based on applications for admission to UAT. Students must have a completed FAFSA application on file. Students may submit additional documentation such as a resume, an essay detailing financial need, or examples of student work in order to be considered for the scholarship, though it is not required. The scholarships will be broken into two different groups:
- The Dr. Edward de Bono Scholarship An award of $2,500 per semester for up to eight (8) semesters
- The Thinking Scholar (Dr. Fritjof Capra, Dr. Margaret Wheatley, Dr. Michio Kaku, Ray Kurzweil and Dr. Lynn Margulis): An award of $1,000 per semester for up to eight (8) semesters
Who is eligible?
- First-time On-campus, undergraduate students
- Students who demonstrate financial need based on the FAFSA application (students may also submit a completed optional essay in addition to the FAFSA application)
- Students who exemplify the mission, vision and values of the University
