Scholarships for
Medical Laboratory Science Majors

The Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences has several named scholarships that are awarded to undergraduate students who major in medical laboratory science. In most cases, scholarships are renewed annually provided that the criteria continue to be met (i.e., GPA, financial need, etc.). Scholarships are not transferable to another major and are forfeited if the student changes his/her major outside of medical laboratory science. Contact the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences at 302-831-2849 for further information about how to apply for these scholarships.
