STEM Scholars Program

Do you have what it takes to be a National Science Foundation STEM Scholar at the College of Saint Elizabeth?

CSE's STEM Scholars Program provides a unique scholarship opportunity and career-oriented academic benefits. High-achieving students interested in majoring in biology, and who are deemed financially eligible to attend college, are strongly encouraged to apply!

CSE is one of six institutions which are part of a research project using a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation's Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics program (NSF S-STEM).

This means that starting in the fall of 2018, CSE will provide up to 18 first-year students with as much as $6,000 a year in scholarship aid for each of their four years of college, along with other benefits such as a laptop computer or iPad Pro, mentoring, individualized advising and involvement in research projects.

Support Includes:

The goal of the STEM Scholars Program is to increase the number of talented biology majors who go on to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in a broad range of scientific endeavors, either by entering the workforce or a life science-related graduate program upon graduation from CSE.
