In addition to Louisiana Tech’s generous university scholarship packages, the program in Biological Science offers the George Roy Hayes, Jr. Endowed Scholarship and the C. Lawrence Neal M.D. Pre-Medicine Endowed Scholarship to majors in this area.

Internships and research

The School of Biological Sciences has a strong and active undergraduate research program. Students can work with faculty members on research projects in the lab or in the field, and can earn academic credit for that research that may be applied towards their degree requirements.

Students in the biological sciences program are not required to complete an internship as a part of their degree requirements, but they have many opportunities available.
