Through the generosity of Watlow, four scholarships ($600 each) are available for any current Cor Jesu student interested in learning more about engineering by attending a summer camp at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (fomerly University of Missouri-Rolla) or SLU Parks College. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Rolla, MO campus or SLU Parks College. Requirements for scholarship applications are as follows:
•Letter of recommendation from one faculty member*
•Written essay (300-500 words) explaining how a Cor Jesu graduate could live out the school mission to transform the world within the field of engineering.

A word from former Camp Scholarship Attendee, Morgan :
"The camp I attended helped me to see what mechanical engineers do on a daily basis and the opportunities that I would have as an engineer in that field. When I arrived, I saw that out of the twenty one campers only three were girls. I saw that there is a great need for women in the field of engineering. This camp has really opened my eyes and shown me the benefits of being an engineer and how I, as an engineer could develop products to help those around the world”
