June 2003 marked the grand opening of the Donald P. Shiley Center for Science and Technology, and the retirement of Dr. Alice B. Hayes, President of the University of San Diego. As part of the opening of the Shiley Center, a scholarship fund in honor of Dr. Hayes was therefore established in support of students who display merit and majoring in biology, chemistry or biochemistry, marine science, environmental studies or physics. Students may choose to use funding from the Hayes Scholarship fund to support summer and academic year research. A committee of faculty members from the four science departments will judge applications.

Application Requirements: 1) You must be majoring in Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Environmental Studies, Marine Science, or Physics. If you are awarded a scholarship, you must remain a student in one of these majors during the award period. 2) You must have a grade point average at or higher than a 3.25/4.00. If you are awarded a scholarship, you must maintain a 3.25 GPA or higher to continue the award for the second year.
