This program awards four students enrolled in a STEM-related major at an accredited four-year college with a $10,000 scholarship. When CST first launched the Local Community Science Scholarship program, it was offered to qualifying students in four communities closest to CST headquarters in Danvers, MA, USA. Now, the program’s availability has expanded to include additional underprivileged local communities and continues to grow.
Scientific endeavor is instrumental in solving critical social, environmental, and technical challenges that we face worldwide. The mission of CST is to deliver the highest quality research tools to progress biological research and enable personalized medicine. We depend on local schools to inspire young students to choose a career committed to science and that's why we are glad to help support the education of future STEM graduates.
Eligibility Requirements Scholarship candidates must meet the following eligibility requirements:
Recipients agree that, at all times during their enrollment in the program, they will conduct themselves with due regard to public morals, conventions, laws, and academic policies and bylaws. If at any time during the years in which they are a scholarship recipient, and in the sole opinion of CST, the Recipient does any act or conduct themselves in any manner contrary to or in violation of a rule, law, or regulation, that is offensive to standards of decency, morality, or social propriety resulting in public scandal or ridicule, or should the recipient do anything to disparage CST or its products or services, CST will have the right to terminate and/or withdraw the scholarship at its sole discretion. CST recognizes the need to encourage those from a background underrepresented in the fields of science by encouraging high schools to consider diversity when presenting its scholars.
