Bausch & Lomb Honorary Science Award and Scholarship

Since 1933, Bausch & Lomb has recognized outstanding high school science students with the Bausch & Lomb Honorary Science Award. Winners of the award are automatically considered for the Bausch & Lomb Science Scholarship at the University of Rochester. Current high school juniors are eligible for the awards. Students are chosen based on the following criteria:

  • Successful completion of freshman- and sophomore-year science courses and one semester of a junior-year science course. (If a junior-year science course is not offered, a one-year course in mathematics may be submitted.);
  • Academic excellence in science;
  • Rigor of courses taken in the sciences;
  • PSAT Math, SAT Math, and/or ACT Science/Math scores

Winners of the Honorary Science Award are automatically considered for the Bausch & Lomb Science Scholarship, which provides each qualified student $6,000 per year (totaling $24,000 over four years).
