The John P. McNulty Scholarship Program for Excellence in Science and Math


The John P. McNulty Scholarship Program for Excellence in Science and Math is an innovative, multi-faceted experience that supports young women’s academic and professional development. Beginning with the awarding of a four year full-tuition scholarship and continuing with a five-prong approach to the college experience throughout the scholar’s four years at Saint Joseph’s University, the program inspires the woman scholar to reach the top ranks of science and math professions. The scholarship is awarded to incoming women freshmen with a declared major in actuarial science, biology, chemical biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental science, mathematics or physics after a competitive application and interview process.

By creating a challenging environment the program is designed to ignite the desire in bright young women to strive for leadership roles in science and math. The program pays tribute to John P. McNulty’s personal commitment to excellence, his commitment to supporting and challenging women to achieve and reach their fullest potential, his energy, and his leadership contributions.

Women in leadership roles, women at the top, are underrepresented in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines. With its multi-faceted experience, the scholars are immersed in an environment that provides the young woman scholar the skill set to take her place on a path leading to excellence and leadership.

A McNulty Scholar is epitomized as someone who dares to be the best! A McNulty Scholar is a young woman who will make an impact!
