The Bucknell STEM Scholars program recognizes talented prospective and current students who are interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields. The program encourages applications from all students — especially those from groups underrepresented in STEM fields, such as first-generation, low-income, multicultural and female students.
A Head Start on Collegiate Research
Approximately 10 Bucknell STEM Scholars will come to Bucknell's campus the summer before their first year. If you become a Bucknell STEM Scholar, you'll get to know your faculty and peer mentors, learn research methods and begin to transition to college life. You'll live with your peers in a community that brings together your experiences inside and outside of class, and gain a hands-on introduction to laboratory research under the close mentorship of a Bucknell professor. As a Bucknell STEM Scholar, your five-week summer transition and research program will lay the foundation for future research interests as well as your relationships with faculty and peers.
