Malandro – Woodward STEM Entrepreneurial Scholarship
The Malandro – Woodward STEM Entrepreneurial Scholarship was established in 2019 by Marc and Jennifer Malandro. Jennifer (Woodward) Malandro earned her B.S. in Biological Sciences in 1991 and was a member of the YSU Women’s Basketball Team. Marc earned both a B.S. in Biological Sciences in 1989 and a M.S. in Biological Sciences in 1991. He later went on to earn a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Both Marc and Jennifer believe that STEM fields are not only paths toward rewarding careers but also to provide students with the necessary skills to be successful in an international competitive environment. As Marc and Jennifer met at YSU and have used the education received there to forward their careers, they have a desire to give back to their beloved alma mater. Their scholarship is awarded to a student enrolled in the STEM College pursuing an entrepreneurial or business minor.
