STEP Science Scholarships

If you are looking for bioinformatics, biochemistry or biotechnology scholarships, you have come to the right place.

For Fall 2019, we are proud to announce that we will offer five four-year $5,000 STEP Science Scholarships for incoming SVC freshmen majoring in bioinformatics, biochemistry or minoring in biotechnology. The scholarships will be in addition to Saint Vincent’s generous merit awards, which range up to $21,000 per year depending on academic record and test scores. Scholarship selection will be based on scholastic performance and an essay, as described below. Financial need will also be taken into account, so you must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered.

Students must participate for the first two years in the Collaborative Learning Program (CLP), aimed at providing students with supplemental instruction in the rigorous courses of their major. 

Science Scholarship recipients must maintain a 3.0 GPA or demonstrate satisfactory academic progress throughout their undergraduate career, graduating with a major in bioinformatics, biochemistry or minor in biotechnology.

How to Apply for STEP Science Scholarships:

After your acceptance to Saint Vincent College, you may apply for the STEP scholarship by completing the following steps:

  1. You must fill out and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered. In the online application, you will be asked to verify that you have completed and submitted this form. Your application cannot be considered unless this step is completed.
