Milton Rose Scholarship
Named in honor of Milton C. Rose, a long time Pfeiffer supporter and trustee, the Milton Rose Research Fellowship is provided to a select group of undergraduate students who are science or math majors at Pfeiffer. Students selected as Rose Research Fellows will, as freshmen, assist faculty with projects that are faculty-designed. Pfeiffer faculty members mentor students as their knowledge of science problems and methods deepens. By the time the Rose Research Fellows reach their junior year they will collaborate with faculty to craft a research direction for their junior/senior capstone project as a unique or contributing effort to continued research areas.
Milton Rose Scholars have worked with faculty members to develop their own research projects and participated in summer internships at major research laboratories such as the National Institutes of Health. The Milton Rose Program has enabled Pfeiffer undergraduates to conduct research in the laboratories of the Smithsonian and at Texas Tech. One Milton Rose student received specialized training in forensic microscopy at the McCrone Institute in Chicago. Students have also conducted summer research in plant molecular genetics at the University of Florida.
