The Creating Opportunities in Science and Mathematics for Occidental Students (COSMOS) program offers scholarships for the sciences.

First-year students interested in pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) majors may be eligible for special scholarships from COSMOS. Watch for upcoming info sessions.

The National Science Foundation will grant scholarships and support advising through a super-mentor program in which faculty advise STEM students throughout their college careers. From 2016–2021, the COSMOS program will affect a total of three annual cohorts of eight first-year students, all of whom will receive up to $8,000 for each of their three remaining years at Occidental — ultimately giving over $500,000 in financial aid to 24 students to assist them in achieving their goals involving science and mathematics.
