Successful St. Scholastica sophmore, junior or senior students may be eligible for a S-STEM scholarship. For more information, download the S-STEM brochure.

Research Opportunities

Students within the mathematics program are encouraged to pursue Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU's). Opportunities are offered throughout the United States and may be found by visiting the National Science Foundation REU website.  

Additionally, a small number of students are able to do research with faculty here at St. Scholastica in the summer. For more information, please contact your adviser.


Students of all sorts are encouraged to seek internships. Some of our recent students found placements in aerospace engineering at NASA, marketing analytics at Target, and programming at Securian.
