Science Scholarships

The study of science is the study of our very existence. It is an investigation into the whys and hows of the world we live in and our role in it. As an academic discipline, science is divided into its constituent parts. There is no undergraduate major known simply as “science.” 

In this category of science scholarships, you are likely to find scholarships for the study of biology, chemistry, entomology, cell biology and many more. In other words, the scholarships listed here will be mostly for the biological sciences as opposed to the information sciences or the physical sciences. Read on to find out more about the complete range of science scholarships.

As an academic major biology involves the study of living organisms – their structure, habitats and life activities. While you'll need a graduate degree for the high-end jobs, the robust job market for sub-fields such as biotechnology should continue to be strong through the coming decade.

Biochemistry is the study of living systems and the chemical components that comprise them. It incorporates knowledge from a range of disciplines including all categories of chemistry and also the life sciences and medicine.

Bioinformatics is a relatively new field. It was recently named by U.S. News and World Report as one of the hottest college majors in the science field. Here you'll learn to apply computer-based technology to biological research. Scholarship opportunities should be prevalent in this emerging and popular field.

The undergraduate major of genetics is a great jumping off point for those interested in continuing their science studies at the graduate level. But there are also career opportunities for those with only a bachelor's degree – jobs ranging from  lab technician to technical science writer.

The individual majors listed above represent just a smattering of the overall science offerings found at the college level. To continue exploring the range and breadth of science scholarships, just click on the links below.
