Scholarships

  • The following scholarships are administered by the Mathematics Department. Students may also want to review the university undergraduate scholarships.

    The Scholarships—Creating Opportunities for Applying Mathematics (S-COAM) project at Indiana University of Pennsylvania is unique in its goal of establishing a supportive connection of master’s students with undergraduates through scholarship cohort activities. Each year, need-based scholarship funds support five or six new graduate students from the M.S. in Applied Mathematics program and seven to 10 new sophomore, junior, or senior undergraduate students seeking a major or minor in a mathematical area.

    Scholarship applications for the scholarships listed below are now completed electronically. The deadline is 4:00 p.m. on February 22, 2016. The Department Scholarship Banquet is typically held near the end of the spring semester.
