Recipients of the Melvin R. Arnold Scholarship must major in either biochemistry or chemistry at Jamestown College, or minor in chemistry along with a major in biology, mathematics or a pre-professional science area. Melvin R.

Arnold Scholarship was established, with the first awards taking place during the 1997-98 academic year.
The Wilson Scholarship provides full tuition renewable for four years and was established in memory of the late Dr. John L. Wilson and his wife, Palma. Dr. Wilson served on the College’s Board of Trustees from 1957 until his death in 1983. Recipients of the scholarship must demonstrate commendable academic and leadership skills.
