SOAR Scholars Program

(Science Opportunities, Activities, and Resources)

The SOAR Scholars program was a $600,00 award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to Furman University providing tuition assistance (up to $10,000/year) to three cohorts of entering freshman intending to major in chemistry or biology, demonstrate academic merit and significant financial need, and exhibiting passion for science beyond the classroom. 

Although completed in 2018, subsequent renewal applications to this effort are currently in development.
