With the support of the National Science Foundation, College of Saint Mary offers a unique and competitive program for academically talented students who excel in STEM. Our Marie Curie Scholarship provides significant financial support and resources for young women who want to major in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, or Human Biology (non-Pre-PA majors). You could receive up to $20,000 toward your College of Saint Mary education each year while you live on campus and continue to meet program requirements. That is up to $80,000 for a four year degree. Marie Curie Scholars receive academic support from tutors, gain research opportunities, enjoy a community of bright, science and math minded women and participate in seminars and student clubs.
To be eligible for the Marie Curie Scholarship, applicants must: pursue a Bachelor of Science in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, or Human Biology (non-Pre-PA); be a citizen of the United States; and possess at least two out of three qualities- have a 3.5 GPA, an ACT score of 23 or a strong demonstration of STEM preparedness through coursework, STEM extracurricular activities, and/or job experience in science and math. Though not required, preference is given to students that wish to pursue non medicine STEM careers, as well as students with high financial aid need and individuals from underrepresented groups (including first-generation, minority groups, single parents).
