Help lead biology education reform! Apply to be a 2013-2014 Biology Scholar!
Join a community of educators who understand the "Vision" and are implementing the "Change."
The mission of the Biology Scholars Program is to empower biologists to be leaders in science education reform and catalyze professional societies to sustain undergraduate education reform. The Program, funded in part by the National Science Foundation, is one model for transforming undergraduate biology education as set forth in the AAAS publication, Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education: A Call to Action.
Who are the Biology Scholars?
The Biology Scholar Alumni community includes nearly 200 national and international biology educators from community colleges, undergraduate institutions, and doctoral-granting universities, who are typically involved in one or more disciplinary societies. Learn more about these Scholars and read how the Biology Scholars Program has helped educators like you answer the AAAS call to action!
