  • Undergraduate research
    A Marymount-based education in Biology focuses on undergraduate research. Students work one-on-one with faculty in the lab and participate in meaningful research that is often published or presented at national or international conferences.
  • Service to the community
    Service is a hallmark of a Marymount education. Biology students and faculty give back both locally and globally — examples include partnering with e-NABLE to provide cost-effective, 3D-printed artificial limbs to those in need, serving those who are food insecure in Arlington County through an on-campus community garden, and working with Hawksbill Hope on its volunteer work in Gales Point, Belize.
  • Scholarships
    Students who demonstrate financial need can apply for STEM scholarships of up to $40,000 across 4 years. These scholarships are made possible by funding from the National Science Foundation.
