Science and Math* Scholarships for JSC Students
Johnson State College received a $551,810 grant from the National Science Foundation in June 2012 to provide scholarships for students in the sciences. The Student Transition, Achievement, Retention and Teaching (START) scholarship provides up to $40,000 over four years to qualified students who choose to major in environmental science, biology or mathematics* at the College.
Student Research, Faculty Mentoring
START scholars will have numerous opportunities to conduct faculty-mentored research, attend conferences, make presentations, conduct fieldwork, and take classes with other START scholars. Academic advising, learning communities, science seminars, career counseling, and participation in national conferences are also part of being a START scholar.
High school students, transfer students, and current JSC students may apply for a START scholarship. Eligible students must major in environmental science, biology or mathematics*, have a minimum 3.0 GPA, fewer than 60 college credits, and demonstrate financial need.
