Mathematics and Statistics Scholarship Opportunities

General Description

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics Scholarship Program is designed to provide encouragement and public recognition to students who have demonstrated academic excellence. The program is supported by generous contributions from individuals, organizations, corporations and foundations. The minimum awards range from $250 to $1000 per year (subject to fund availability) and are available for both undergraduate and graduate students for the entire academic year.  Award recipients for the succeeding school year will be announced each Spring semester.
