If you are looking for Bioinformatics Scholarships, Biochemistry Scholarships, or Biotechnology Scholarships, you have come to the right place.
For Fall 2013, we are proud to announce new four year, full-tuition STEP Science Scholarships for incoming SVC freshmen majoring in Bioinformatics, Biochemistry, or minoring in Biotechnology. The scholarships are partially funded by the National Science Foundation through the “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Talent Expansion Program” or STEP.
Scholarship selection will be based first on scholastic performance, and 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 a new college initiative, 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.
After your acceptance to Saint Vincent College, you may apply for the STEP scholarship by completing the following essay. Please include your name, address, and date of birth.
Describe in about 1,000 words why you want to enroll in one of the following programs: Bioinformatics, Biochemistry or Biotechnology. How will this interdisciplinary field assist you in achieving your future career goals?
The deadline for receiving the completed STEP Scholarship application is March 1. Awards will be made by April 1. (Send your application in advance if using standard mail.) Send your STEP science scholarship essay to the following address:
