Scholarships

Mathematical Sciences

Most scholarships in the Mathematical Sciences Department are determined by a department committee. Some scholarships are primarily based on merit, and others on a combination of merit and financial need. If you would like to be considered for our need-based scholarships, please fill out the Mathematical Sciences General Scholarship Application (PDF) and return it to the chair of the Mathematical Sciences Department. One application will allow you to be considered for all relevant awards.

If you would like additional information about scholarships, please contact our department chairperson.
