The mission of the Science Scholars Program at St. John Fisher College is to recruit, retain, and graduate students who are engaged in mathematics, science, and technology in a way that supports collaborative approaches to problem-solving, so that students are able not only to contribute to the body of scientific knowledge, but also work with others in applying that knowledge to real-world problems.
The Science Scholars Program is a merit-based scholarship program for students majoring in biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, or statistics. To complete the program, students must maintain a 3.30 cumulative grade point average, major in one of the areas listed, and complete a series of courses designed to enhance their learning experience in the sciences and mathematics.
The program begins with a designated learning community course and a series of seminars, and culminates in an individual research experience supervised by a faculty member in their respective departments.
