We currently in the ninth and final year of the PEERS Program: an exciting opportunity for promising young scientists at Sam Houston State University.

For each of the past eight years, up to $150,000 was awarded to more than three dozen undergraduate and graduate students studying mathematics, statistics, geology, geography, and the biological sciences.

With funding from the National Science Foundation, the PEERS Program rewarded academic success and interest in scientific research through generous financial scholarships.
