Physics Scholarships

Each year, the Department of Physics and Astronomy is pleased to be able to offer a number of undergraduate scholarships to physics majors who show great aptitude and achievement in their undergraduate studies. These scholarships have been established to honor distinguished former teachers and alumni, and to honor the students who receive them.

List of Physics Scholarships and Awards.

The department does not differentiate between these various awards regarding eligibility, criteria for awards, stipends or merit. Physics scholarships are merit awards and are granted on the basis of motivation, aptitude, and achievement. Decisions are made without discrimination on the basis of disability, and such decisions do not limit, segregate, or classify applicants or employees based on disability in a way that adversely affects their opportunities or status.

Physics majors wishing to apply for a departmental scholarship should login to ScholarshipUniverse (https://missouri.scholarshipuniverse.com) and complete their profile. The Department of Physics and Astronomy scholarships can be found by selecting “Physics and Astronomy”  in the search section. For more information, visit Student Financial Aid page.

The deadline for application is March 1st.

All students who are currently receiving a scholarship are also required to submit an application every year if they desire to have their scholarships renewed.
