Women in STEM Scholarship

Physics Lab

In addition to our generous four-year merit scholarships, CSB has a limited number of Women in STEM scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis at the time of admission. To be considered for this scholarship, applicants must declare a major in one of six eligible academic fields at CSB and SJU (Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Science, Data Science, Mathematics and Physics).

Scholarship Value:
$5,000 for each of four years. 4-year value of $20,000

Scholarship recipients will be part of  a community of student leaders who have been selected to receive four years of financial aid, extended mentorship and support, and professional development. The goal of this program is to provide general education and training in communication, leadership, networking, ethics, and equity in STEM to assist the scholars in their preparation for future leadership roles while complementing the specialized education and training provided in their STEM programs.

Candidates are preferred to have taken the equivalent of four years of high school math and science, but we welcome applications from candidates who didn’t have this opportunity. Candidates must also plan to begin their education at CSB during the Fall 2024 semester.

Apply for our Women In STEM Scholarship

Each scholar, by accepting the scholarship award makes a commitment to participate in this program.  This requires completing a sequence of courses intended to help students transition to college, explore and prepare for careers in STEM, live in our STEM intentional living community, and get started on research.  To continue to hold the scholarship, a scholar must make satisfactory progress toward their STEM degree and be an active participant in specialized program events each year for four consecutive years.

*CSB and SJU do not have a major in engineering. Students pursuing a career in engineering can either complete the engineering concentration within our physics degree or complete our dual-degree program with Washington University in St. Louis. Students planning to pursue engineering must be majoring in one of the STEM fields listed above to qualify for this scholarship.
