Six freshmen at Dominican College have been awarded up to $10,000 a year for four years as part of the new BLISS (Biology for Low Income Student Scholars) program. This scholarship program was made possible by a $592,688 grant Dominican College was awarded from the National Science Foundation (NSF) .

In addition to financial aid, the program assists these academically-talented biology students  by providing internships, research experiences, and field trips. The scholarship winners work closely with each other, faculty, and administrators to ensure their success in a biology career.

Bernadette Connors, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Biology, said, “This program will help to draw those students who may have financial need, but who are very passionate about learning biology and about gaining an education in all the sciences with a liberal arts background.”

The students accepted this year in the scholarship program are: Stephanie Denis, Darian Fernandez, Albert Martinez, Kelly Murphy, Natalia Perez-Cervantes, and Amanda Saab. Next year, eight scholarships will be awarded.

Interested applicants should contact the Office of Admissions at admissions@duny.edu.

 

College Awarded Alpha Award

The National Council of Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society has awarded an Alpha Award at the Silver level to the Dominican College chapter of Alpha Lambda Delta. The Alpha Award is national recognition from the freshmen honor society given to chapters that have initiated a notably high percentage of their invited students.

In the 2013-2014 academic year, Dominican College inducted 87% of the students who were qualified and invited to join Alpha Lambda Delta. The College understands the importance of recognizing academic excellence among first year students and continuing to honor achievement, both in academics and community service, as students continue in their college career.

According to a letter from Dr. Glenda Earwood, Executive Director of Alpha Lambda Delta, “The growth of this honor society demonstrates that more academically talented students are drawn to your campus and that the successful transition of these students from high school to college has been supported by the faculty and staff.”

Alpha Lambda Delta is an honor society for students who have succeeded in maintaining a 3.5 or higher GPA, and are in the top 20% of their class, in their first year of college. Its mission is to “encourage superior academic achievement… to promote intelligent living and a continued high standard of learning, and to assist students in recognizing and developing meaningful goals for their unique roles in society.” Alpha Lambda Delta has initiated more than 1,000,000 gifted students on college campuses across the country for the past 90 years.

In her letter, Dr. Earwood closes by saying, “The National Council of Alpha Lambda Delta appreciates the hard work and diligence exemplified by your advisors who have provided leadership and created a positive environment for these students resulting in an outstanding chapter.”
