The Physics & Astronomy Department offers scholarship money for new and returning physics majors.
Scholarships of up to $2000 per year are available for the study of physics at Washburn University. Physics scholarships are linked in the amount to ACT scores and are in addition to those awarded by Washburn University.
Scholarships recipients will be selected from those applicants who satisfy the criteria listed below.
Recipients are expected to declare a major in physics, enroll in MA 151 or higher-numbered mathematics course in the fall semester, and enroll in PS 281 in the spring semester. Half of the scholarship is awarded for the first semester at Washburn University, with the remainder awarded at the beginning of the spring semester, provided that the mathematics course is passed with a grade of "B" or better.
The scholarship may be extended for up to three years and may be graduated. For consideration of the year-by-year extension, the student must make progress toward the major in physics by satisfying the criteria listed below.
