Great STEM careers start here

If your passion is science, technology, engineering or math this is the place to be. Just ask Tayo Sanders II, a 2015 recipient of the Rhodes Scholarship, about the opportunities available at UW-Eau Claire. The materials science major received the equivalent of the Heisman Trophy or the Academy Award of scholarships. The Rhodes Scholarship is the most famous academic award offered to a select few students in the world. He will receive a full-ride to pursue his doctorate at Oxford University in England. Tayo’s hard work paired with the right mentor at UWEC helped him achieve this amazing award.
