Biology Undergraduate Scholarships

The Division of Biology awards over $100,000 in scholarship to new and continuing biology undergraduates annually.

Students will automatically be considered for all Division of Biology scholarships for which they are eligible by completing a K-State Scholarship Network (KSN) application. Students need to update their applications annually.

Students should check KSN for application due dates , which are typically mid-March for continuing students and the beginning of February for incoming freshmen.

Note that the Biology "Emergency Aid" Student Opportunity Awards is available year round to help biology students in extreme financial need.

The Biology Undergraduate Scholarship Committee makes decisions on awarding these scholarships each year by reviewing applications from KSN. The committee selects recipients based on their academic performance, leadership and community service, financial need, Division of Biology involvement, and the individual donor’s requirements. Scholarships are typically $1,000 for the upcoming academic year. Unless otherwise noted in the description, biology scholarships are one-time awards and are not renewable.

In addition, biology students have had great success in getting competitive scholarships at the national, university, and college levels.

Students involved in research may be eligible for research fellowships/scholarships and should discuss their options with the faculty member they work with.
