Science Scholars Program

The Mount Holyoke College Science Scholars Program is a new academic honors program aimed at recruiting and mentoring a diverse community of highly talented science and math students.  Five students from the first class to enter Mount Holyoke in the fall will participate in the program during the summer preceding matriculation.  Program participants are selected based on their academic record and potential for success in science and mathematics.  Each program participant joins a research team consisting of a professor and a Mount Holyoke student who will serve as mentors to the Science Scholar. Each team works for four weeks on a directed research project.  In addition, the Science Scholars frequently interact with each other and with the rest of the summer academic community.  There are regular research and careers seminars, workshops on science and math skills, and social events.  The Science Scholars give presentations on their research projects at the Annual Mount Holyoke College Summer Science Symposium. Each Science Scholar will receive a stipend and in addition the program will pay for housing on campus.

Please note that the program is not available in this academic year.
