When watching “The Big Bang Theory,” do you understand everything Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter talk about? If so, perhaps you have a future in science. Much like the popular theoretical and experimental physicists portrayed on TV, real-life scientists can vary just as much as their fields of study. Students who plan to study biology, chemistry, physics, anatomy, or environmental sciences can pursue fields in research, teaching, experiments, and more! The one thing all science majors do have in common is that they’ll need to pay for college. With a growing need, along with a high level of academic coursework, there are several organizations, schools, and private scholarships offered for those pursuing a future in science. You won’t need a microscope to find them, either. We’ve listed scholarships for science majors right here; so search and apply today!
