Each scholarship covers eligible expenses for tuition, fees, books, and room and board, up to a maximum of $7,500 annually.
Students need to complete a "pre-application" form. This form is due in fall 2010 (generally October). Students who have been nominated by a faculty member will receive this form. Students may also self-nominate. In this case they can obtain a "pre-application" form from Dr. Cherney, the faculty representative.
Please contact Dr. Cherney for the campus deadlines.
Nominees are evaluated on:
- Demonstrated potential for and commitment to a career in mathematics, the natural sciences, or engineering.
- Outstanding academic performance.
