The Liberal Arts Science Scholars Program: Providing Scholarships and Support...

Undergraduate

Small, selective liberal arts colleges like St. Lawrence University focus on small class sizes, meaningful interactions between faculty and students, and hands-on experiences. The opportunities available to young scientists, engineers, and mathematicians at such institutions, including mentored research experiences, produce independent thinkers who are ready to change the world. Unfortunately, the financial costs and history of homogeneity at selective, small colleges can prevent students from a variety of backgrounds from deciding to attend and finding success once they do attend. The NSF-funded Liberal Arts Science Scholars S-STEM program at St. Lawrence addresses this inequality and the unique program design helps ensure student success. The merit scholarship guarantees that students will receive their degrees with significantly reduced financial pressure, leaving them free to focus on their studies, while interdisciplinary scholars-specific courses introduce students to scientific research in their first year and the freedom to choose any STEM major means that students are ready to pursue their interests wherever they may lead. St. Lawrence undergraduate LAS scholars tell you in their own words about their experiences and explorations: their independent research projects, their classes and campus life at St. Lawrence, and their goals for the future.
