College of Science

Through your support, the College of Science can attract the most promising young scientists, and provide them the opportunity to work side-by-side with committed faculty and participate in advanced research opportunities in the lab and field. Support from alumni and friends also provides critical funds used to purchase cutting-edge technology and equipment for our labs and classrooms. No contribution is too small; every gift makes a difference in the lives of our students, and we are grateful for every gift we receive.

What Scholarships have done for me
