About the Fellows
John S. Toll Science and Mathematics Fellows Program
The John S. Toll Fellows Program is named in honor of the College’s 25th president. The purpose of the JSTF Program is to support the academic and research activities of students and faculty who belong to the College’s vibrant community of natural sciences and mathematics scholars.
John S. Toll Science and Mathematics Fellows must major in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, Mathematics, Physics, or Psychology. These majors can be pursued in conjunction with our Premedical Studies/Pre-Vet program, 3+2 Engineering program, 3+2 Nursing program, or 3+4 Pharmacy program. All Apprentices and Fellows must maintain full-time enrollment at Washington College, maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 - 4.00, and abide by the Washington College Honor Code in the pursuit of all endeavors, both academic and social.
Close faculty mentoring and high-level undergraduate research are the hallmarks of our approach to teaching the natural sciences and mathematics at Washington College. When the time comes for you to apply to medical school, enter a Ph.D. program in chemistry, or land a research position in marine science, you will have the knowledge, the skills and the technological training that schools and research laboratories demand.
As a John Toll Fellow who has conducted graduate-level research and published your scientific findings, your résume will be even stronger.
