Students interested in pursuing a science-related college education may be eligible for a new two-year free tuition program at Spokane Community College.
The new SCC Science Scholars program is funded by a recent $649,591 grant from the National Science foundation. The program is now taking applications from students interested in the fields of biology, chemistry, geology, environmental sciences and related fields.
Successful applicants must be eligible for some amount of financial aid, have an incoming GPA of 3.0 in their science classes, agree to attend SCC full-time, maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.8 and plan to obtain a transfer degree to then go on to study science at a four-year university.
Those admitted will start classes in fall 2019. There is no application fee and priority will be given to applications received by March 1.
“This is such an exciting opportunity for students to get started on a college science degree in a supportive, high-quality learning environment,” said L. Jaye Hopkins, chemistry instructor and coordinator of the scholars program. “Students will benefit from the academic and financial support that the SCC Science Scholars program provides, as well as our small class sizes, exceptional faculty, and state-of-the-art facilities.”
