Your gift makes a difference!

This year, thanks to an anonymous donor, when 25 donors give, an extra $250 will be unlocked! When 50 or more donors give, another gift of $750 will be unlocked for BioCORE! Help us hit these goals by making your gift today!

The BioCORE Scholars program supports first-generation students and those traditionally underrepresented in biological and biomedical sciences. This innovative program builds community, creates pathways for students to excel, and develops leaders.

Please help us continue to support our present and future BioCORE Scholars with a gift today.
Read below to learn how SPU's BioCORE Scholars found community and academic support as part of the BioCORE Scholars Program.

"BioCORE Scholar Research Week made a big difference in my life because it really taught me what science is truly about."

“BioCORE helped me better understand biology and it also helped me discover myself.”

“Without BioCORE, I would feel alone.”

“The BioCORE learning assistants made us aware of our capabilities.”

The BioCORE Scholars Program

The BioCORE Scholars program provides academic intervention and leadership training for underrepresented students in the biological sciences. Scholars attend weekly academic training sessions led by Learning Assistants, meet monthly with Peer Mentors to address challenges, attend quarterly meetings with community leaders of color, and engage in a weeklong research project with biology and chemistry faculty. As upperclassmen, scholars serve as Learning Assistants and Peer Mentors while helping coordinate the program to hone their leadership skills. This successful program strives for equity in STEM by developing academically prepared leaders to serve as agents of change.

Donations are applied to...

The comprehensive cost of this program is $2,500 per student.

  • $10 buys a coffee card to help a Peer Mentor meet with a scholar.
  • $50 pays for one weekly Learning Assistant review session for scholars.
  • $100 provides funds for “pizza with purpose” meetings with Seattle scientists.
  • $150 subsidizes one scholar’s stay at our Blakely Island retreat.
  • $500 pays for a scholar to work in a faculty research lab during research week.
  • $2,500 funds all costs for one scholar to complete the two-year program!
  • Why are donations necessary?

    The BioCORE Scholars program is entering its sixth year, and the data shows strong improvements in student academic performance and retention.

    The BioCORE Scholar experience opens pathways to medical, industrial, and graduate programs, where our graduates’ diverse voices serve as beacons and mentors for others who seek to join these communities. The program is core to Seattle Pacific’s Christ-centered mission of equity for all. Your gift will help ensure its continuation and growth.

    Please join us in support of these students as they move through their college experience and into careers as leaders of change in our world.
