The Spokane Community College Science Scholars program provides a full scholarship, academic support, and other developmental activities to students pursuing a science transfer degree (AA-DTA or AS-T) in the fields of biology, chemistry or geology at SCC. Admission to the program is competitive.
To qualify for the SCC Science Scholars program, students must:
Have financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form and SCC Financial Aid office. Financial need is defined as a Cost of Attendance (COA) that exceeds the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC). Students that do not meet this definition will not be accepted to the program.
Be enrolled at SCC with plans to attend full time for two years to complete a science transfer degree (AA-DTA or AS-T) in biology, chemistry, geology or environmental science. Other degrees, certificates, or sciences — including computer science, nursing or allied health — do not qualify for this program.
