Department of Biology Awards and Scholarships
The Department of Biology is proud of the accomplishments of its students and seeks a variety of means by which to recognize them. Foremost are several awards and scholarships of varying amounts that are awarded annually. Below is information and the application for the awards and scholarships available though the department for students studying the life sciences. Awards are chosen through faculty nominations and do not require an application. Scholarships are awarded to students that have submitted applications (see application link below).
