STEP Science Scholarships

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

For Fall 2017, we are proud to announce that we will offer five $5,000 annual 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 $20,500 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. 
  2. Visit the STEP Science Scholarship Online Application page and provide your information.
  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: bioinformaticsbiochemistry 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 March 15, 2017.
