Davis-Bahcall deadline extended

The deadline for the prestigious Davis Bahcall summer study program for students interested in science has been extended. With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and with many students busy getting college application packages put together before the break, we wanted to make sure all interested students had an adequate opportunity to submit their applications. The new application deadline is Jan. 20.

Please pass this information along to your high school science and math teachers, particularly those teaching advanced courses, school counselors and any interested students you are aware of. Click here to find more information about the Davis Bahcall Scholarship.
