Susquehanna welcomes its first S-STEM Students
Funded by an S-STEM (Scholarships–Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) grant from the National Science Foundation, Susquehanna’s Broadening Intensive Opportunities for Scholarship (BIOS) program provides financial and programming support for academically qualified biology students who have been historically underrepresented in the sciences. They include students of color, first-generation college students and those from geographical locations underrepresented at Susquehanna.
Eleven first-year students make up the inaugural STEM-BIOS cohort at Susquehanna.
The students spent the week of June 25 on campus conducting lab and field work, getting acquainted with science faculty, and learning more about Susquehanna’s biology program. Activities ranged from catching wolf spiders in a soybean field to lab research to canoeing on the Susquehanna River and getting acquainted with the area.
