Our Scholars

Our Scholars are selected for their love of science, as well as their leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills. We want scholars who are not only interested in their personal success, but the success of their entire Posse cohort. 


At Brandeis, Science Posse Scholars have declared majors across various STEM disciplines including: Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Neuoroscience and Physics. Some Science Posse Scholars have double majored in two complimentary STEM disciplines, while others have decided to major in a STEM discipline and a non-STEM discipline. The flexibility of the Brandeis curriculum allows Science Posse Scholars the opportunity to fully explore their academic interests.

Study Abroad

Science Posse Scholars may use their full-tuition scholarship to study abroad in a fall or spring semester. Scholars have participated in experiences such as the Medial Practice and Policy program in Copenhagen, Denmark; the Community Health and Social Policy Program in Durban, South Africa; and the International Development Program in Bangalore, India.

Co-Curricular Activities

Science Posse Scholars are active in all facets of campus life. They have served as community advisors, orientation leaders, undergraduate departmental representatives, student support services peer mentors, peer tutors, and led domestic and international community service initiatives.
