Why ESU?

Our professors don’t want you to be a passive learner in the biology program, but an active participant in study and research in your field of interest. With smaller class sizes in your major, you’ll have the opportunity to do original research of your own choosing or work with professors on ongoing projects.

A number of medical professionals who are ESU alumni and friends came together in 2017 with a shared goal: to recruit exceptional incoming freshmen and support them in their pursuit of being admitted to medical school. A successful applicant will receive a prestigious $10,000 fellowship, payable as $2,500 per year for four years. The fellowship includes a paid clinical internship. Find out more.
