College of Science


The College of Science grants scholarships based on academic merit to highly qualified applicants each year. During recent years, more than $400,000 in scholarship money has been distributed annually by the college to outstanding students. Top students will receive invitations to apply for scholarships; however, the College of Science scholarship application is open to all students pursuing a science program.

For beginning students, successful applicants typically will be among the top 10 percent of their high school class, have strong grades in high school math and science courses and have outstanding standardized test scores (greater than 1350 on the combined SAT exams, or 32 on the ACT exams) as well as participation in leadership activities and honors. Continuing students who compete successfully for scholarships usually have at least a 3.5 (out of a possible 4.0) overall GPA in addition to a strong record in leadership, community service and research.
