Biology Scholarships

Biology is a popular major among college students — and not just those with visions of crisp white lab coats dancing in their heads. Whether or not you plan to acquire an M.D., you have plenty of options as a biology student: Your employment options include working in aquariums, schools, hospitals, parks, zoos, laboratories and more.

But before you make your career move, you have to finish school. School will cost you money, and money doesn’t grow on trees — even biologists can’t make that happen. If you’re willing to put forth the effort, you can find a number of biology scholarships that can help you pay for a college education.

Numerous scholarship providers have gone out of their way to create scholarship funds for students who have set their sights on studying biology. Some have done this because of their love of the subject, some in memory of important biologists and some, well, who knows why some have done it. The important thing is that these biology scholarships are out there, just waiting to be awarded.

If you plan to make biology into a career, or at least a major, take the time to search for biology scholarships. Scholarships.com has information about numerous biology scholarships especially created for majors. In addition to these, you may also want to look at medical scholarships which, as a biology student, you may be eligible to receive. To find information about biology scholarships and grants you may qualify for based on major or additional criteria, try conducting a free college scholarship search at Scholarships.com.
