Each year, the Crocker Science House hosts twelve undergraduate students with a passion for the sciences. Nestled in Officers Circle, at the base of the Wasatch foothills and the Shoreline Trail, Crocker Science House Scholars live and learn together in a beautifully restored sandstone building once occupied by military officers. Throughout the year, Science Scholars have the opportunity to attend lectures, dinners, and other events with luminaries of Utah's business, science, and academic communities. Students accepted into the Crocker Science House receive scholarships and financial housing assistance, making this opportunity accessible to a wide range of students.
Crocker Science Scholars come from a variety of geographic, cultural, and academic backgrounds, united by a strong drive to succeed in the physical and life sciences. Each cohort has a diverse cross-section of biologists, chemists, mathematicians, physicists, and astronomers in residence. Scholars often find that living in close quarters with students from other disciplines helps them with their own work and encourages them to explore avenues of science they would not have considered otherwise. Crocker Science House alumni have gone on to jobs in science industry, and have been accepted as Master and Ph.D. candidates at the world's top universities.
