We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Eberly College of Science! We offer a variety of programs and resources to support your transition to campus.
Engineering Summer Bridge
Summer Bridge is a six-week academic summer program to help incoming first-year students prepare for their engineering or science-based major. The program also includes structured social and cultural events that encourage students to build relationships with each other and relate in-class activities to out-of-class experiences.
Summer Bridge is administered through the College of Engineering but Science students are encouraged to apply.
First-Year in Science and Engineering (FISE) Special Living Option
FISE offers a residential experience for first-year students seeking to live in a diverse and inclusive STEM-focused living and learning community.
Bunton-Waller Undergraduate Scholarship Program
Named in honor of Mildred S. Bunton and Calvin H. Waller, the first-recorded African American alumna and alumnus of Penn State, the Bunton-Waller Undergraduate Scholarship Program is a merit-based award given to students who bring diverse perspectives, identities, and interests to Penn State. The Bunton-Waller program attracts students who contribute to the diversity of the student body and demonstrate strong academic and professional potential. In addition to the merit-based awards, Bunton-Waller recipients are part of the Penn State Educational Equity Scholars Program community, and participate in a living and learning community in their first year.
To be considered for scholarships within the Eberly College of Science including Bunton-Waller, high school seniors should complete the Science Scholarship application. Application closes on January 29, 2021. You must submit your application to Penn State before you are eligible to apply for scholarships within Eberly.
Millennium Scholars Program
The Penn State Millennium Scholars Program is designed for high-achieving science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students who will become leaders in their chosen fields and are committed to increasing the diversity of professionals in STEM-related disciplines. Millennium Scholars are students with both the passion and the ability to advance the frontiers of knowledge and change the world.
