Departmental Scholarships

Mathematics Department Scholarships

The Mathematics Department offers the following scholarships based on academic merit, which includes mathematics classes taken in high school, cumulative GPA, high school class rank, standardized test scores, and extracurricular activities.

Consideration for scholarship awards begins each November and continues until all scholarships have been awarded for the upcoming academic year.

Edna H. Myers Scholarships

Each year, several Edna H. Myer scholarships of up to $5000 per academic year are awarded. These scholarships are awarded to entering freshmen who major in mathematics or mathematics education and are renewed for up to three additional years for those recipients who meet the retention criteria.

Isaac F. Seiverling-Charles A. Rutter Scholarship in Mathematics

Each year, this scholarship is awarded to an entering freshman whose declared major is mathematics or mathematics education, or it is renewed for its current recipient. Selection is based primarily on previous academic performance and secondarily on financial need. This scholarship may be renewed for up to three additional years or until graduation, whichever comes first. The amount of the scholarship is based on the income generated from the endowment.

Joseph and Anita Meier Mathematics Scholarship

Each year, this scholarship is awarded to an entering freshman whose declared major is mathematics or mathematics education, or it is renewed for its current recipient. Selection is based primarily on previous academic performance. This scholarship may be renewed for up to three additional years or until graduation, whichever comes first. The amount of the scholarship is based on the income generated from the endowment.

Edna B. Cohen Mathematics Scholarship

The awarding of this scholarship is similar to that of the Joseph and Anita Meier Mathematics Scholarship.
