S-STEM Scholarship Program
Susquehanna wants the best and brightest biology students
Susquehanna University has received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The S-STEM program provides scholarships that will help Susquehanna meet the full demonstrated need of 30 students who wish to study biology. Susquehanna encourages students from underrepresented backgrounds to apply.
The grant provides almost $600,000 over four years for the program. The BIOS (Broadening Intensive Opportunities for Scholarship) Program will offer the following to select biology majors who demonstrate aptitude and financial need:
- Science scholarships
- Summer orientation
- Community engagement
- Focused mentoring and advising
- Research and internship opportunities to prepare for graduate school and STEM careers
The first 11 students in Susquehanna’s BIOS Program cohort are members of the first-year class that entered in the fall of 2012. We look forward to welcoming the next cohort to campus soon—the Class of 2017.
