Physics Scholarship

Saint Mary's College Department of Physics and Astronomy invites applications for the Physics Scholarships.  Two scholarships are available for each incoming class of first-year students.   Each scholarship is awarded in the amount of $13,000 annually and is renewable for four years. The Physics department scholarship is based on an exam. The hour-long exam is designed to test a student’s creative problem-solving skills. It cannot be studied for or prepared for and does not test specific knowledge of Physics – we seek students who have the ability to think outside the box and examine problems from multiple perspectives.

Eligible students must:

    Submit a self-nomination form
    Score a 600 or better on the math sub-section of the SAT, or a 26 on the math sub-section of the ACT
    Visit campus Saturday, February 24, 2018, to take the exam
