Departmental Scholarships

The School of Mathematics and our generous affiliates recognize hard-working, talented mathematics majors by providing departmental scholarships.

The application process for an Undergraduate Mathematics Scholarship uses a short online application form which can be accessed only while logged into your UMN account during the open application period. The deadline for submitting an application in Spring 2021 (for academic year 2021-2022) is Friday, April 16, 2021. 

Applicants must be mathematics majors in good academic standing who will register as full-time students for both Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters.

Thirty math majors were awarded scholarships by the School of Mathematics for 2020-2021.
