Miller named STEMM fellow

Twenty-nine University of Cincinnati students were recently named recipients of Choose Ohio First Scholarships for pre-service teachers through the University of Cincinnati’s College of Education, Criminal Justice and Human Services.

University of Cincinnati junior Lyndsey Miller, 20, from Batavia, was among those selected and will receive a total of $9,000 in scholarship funds over the next two years.

The state of Ohio funds the program aimed to attract, retain and graduate students into the high-demand STEMM (science, technology, engineering, math, medicine) disciplines and strengthen the state’s workforce. The UC STEMM Fellows program was awarded $822,000 to be distributed over six years.
