Scholarships

Department awarded scholarships
These scholarships are awarded directly by the Physics &Astronomy Department to physics majors, physics education majors, dual degree physics/engineering majors, and pre-engineering students. All of the faculty members in the Department get together as the selection committee to discuss the candidates for each scholarship. The total amount of all of these awards is nearly $15,000.


Physics category scholarships
These scholarships are awarded by a variety of other entities at UWEC, but all different types of physics majors are eligible to receive them. Please take a look at these descriptions to see if you are a good candidate for any of the specific scholarships. Although these scholarships are highly competitive (mostly because they span across many departments), usually very few students apply for them.
