Hartwick Accepting Applications for Biotechnology Scholarship Program

February 1, 2010

Are you interested in biotechnology? Alternative energy? Genetic engineering? Robotics? Cancer research? So are we.

According to U.S. Department of Labor statistics, careers in biotechnology are growing much faster than they can be filled by qualified skilled individuals. That means huge opportunities for college science graduates! Biotechnology encompasses a wide range of exciting career opportunities, from environmental engineering, agriculture, and alternative energy to robotics, neurobiology, organ regeneration, and bioengineering to cancer research, genetic engineering, and cloning.

The Hartwick College-National Science Foundation Biotechnology Scholarship offers $40,000 to selected full-time students interested in a career in biotechnology. Granted to six incoming full-time first-year students, this unique scholarship provides opportunities for special internship, research, and mentoring experiences.

The $10,000 per year award is in addition to other merit and need-based financial aid as awarded by the Hartwick College Office of Financial Aid & Affordability, and is renewable for four years, contingent upon continued eligibility.
