Biology Scholars

Biology Scholars are selected through a competitive application process for each Residency Program. Scholars are biologists who individually investigate their teaching and contribute to a larger community-of-practice where work is grounded in a collective understanding about undergraduate education in the life sciences. Scholars move from individual scholarship in student inquiry to community participants serving as peer mentors and role models in their departments, institutions, and professional societies. Over 260 Scholars have been trained since 2005 and are a part of the Biology Scholars Alumni Network.
