• NSF (National Science Foundation) iMASS Scholarship Program

    This program is intended to develop a community of mathematics and science scholars, provide them with meaningful research and/or internship opportunities, and give them the financial support necessary for them to succeed. We seek to build research teams that include both mathematics and science majors. Mathematics scholars will be able to apply their knowledge to meaningful real-world scientific research, and science scholars will have the benefit of added mathematical rigor in support of their conclusions.

    Amount of Scholarship:

    • Up to $4,000 sophomore year
    • Up to $8,000 for both the junior and senior year

    Scholarship Recipients Requirements

    Scholarship recipients must:

    1. be a rising sophomore

    6. demonstrate financial need, defined for undergraduate students by the US Department of Education rules for need-based Federal financial aid, or, for graduate students, defined as financial eligibility for Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GANN)
