  • STEP Science Scholarships

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

    For Fall 2021, we are proud to announce that we will offer five four-year $5,000 STEP Science Scholarships for incoming SVC freshmen majoring in biochemistry, data science or minoring in biotechnology. The scholarships will be in addition to Saint Vincent’s generous scholarship awards, which range up to $27,000 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 biochemistry data science 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.

    3. Complete and attach the following STEP Science Scholarship Essay question:

      Describe in 1,000 words or less why you want to enroll in one of the following interdisciplinary program: biochemistry, data science or biotechnology; explain why science interests you and how the field you selected will assist you in achieving your future career goal.

    4. Submit your online application by pressing the 'Apply Now!' button. A confirmation will be sent to your email address. 

    The deadline for receiving the completed STEP Scholarship application is Feb. 14, 2021.
