Summer STEM Course Scholarships

Life science majors often find that delaying chemistry (or calculus) until completion of their freshmen year is academically beneficial.  Wren Scholars will be eligible to receive a scholarship to take one or both semesters of first year chemistry (General Chemistry I and Organic Chemistry I) at William & Mary during the summer following their freshmen year.  Tuition and free on-campus housing will be provided.  Taking chemistry or other STEM courses during the summer allows students devote focused effort to these classes and to benefit from smaller class sizes and more personal attention.  If it is particularly helpful to their academic plan, Wren Scholars may also apply to take a different STEM class offered during the summer at William & Mary. The application process for this program will be announced at the beginning of spring semester of each year. Applications for Summer 2019 are due March 1, 2019. While rising sophomores will receive priority, these courses are open to all STEM majors from backgrounds underrepresented in STEM fields.
