The MAOP Graduate Scholars Program (GS) assists with graduate school financing in exchange for assistance to MAOP Administration. Graduate students assist with programming implementation such as mentoring to undergraduate students and assisting with workshops for the undergraduates.
In order to be considered as a Graduate Scholar, the student's academic department must be willing to also provide some form of financial support. This support can be in the form of tuition and/or an assistantship. MAOP partners with the graduate student's academic department to support students. Awards range between $9,000 and $16,000 per academic year. The awards may be renewed on a yearly basis subject to the availability of funds.
Graduate scholars are selected on the basis of their undergraduate academic performance, an essay focusing upon their commitment to academic diversity at Virginia Tech and admission to the Graduate School.
