  • maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better

ADAPT-EI students must demonstrate their academic eligibility each semester. A student who receives a scholarship for the fall semester and follows all requirements will be automatically granted a scholarship for the spring semester. Continuation from spring to fall semester follows the same requirements; however, the amount of the scholarship may vary in the next academic year based on the previous semester’s performance and evaluation by the research mentor and PI.
