The Physics Departments awards over $38,750 in scholarship to new and continuing physics undergraduates annually.

Students will automatically be considered for all Physics Department scholarships for which they are eligible by completing a K-State Scholarship Network (KSN) application. Students need to update their applications annually.

Students should check KSN for application due dates.

The Physics Scholarship Committee makes decisions on awarding department scholarships each year by reviewing the applications from KSN. The committee selects recipients based on academic performance, leadership, community service, financial need, Physics department involvement, and individual scholarship requirements. Scholarships are typically $X for the academic year. Unless otherwise noted in the description, physics scholarships are one-time awards and are not renewable.

In addition, physics students have had great success in receiving competitive scholarships at the national, university, and college levels such as the Goldwater and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.
