Scholarships and Awards
Mathematics Scholarships. These scholarships are given to mathematics majors (double majors are eligible for these scholarships) to honor students with outstanding performance and to encourage them to continue in mathematics at that level of excellence. These scholarships are made possible by the generous support of contributors to the Mathematics Endowment Fund. The scholarship amount is at least $500. More information about these scholarships, as well as the online application form, may be found at the myScholarships web page ( https://gvsu.academicworks.com/). The application deadline is March 1.
Donald and Barbara VanderJagt Mathematics and Athletics Scholarship. The donors of this scholarship recognize that there are two activities on campus that take a considerable amount of time and commitment, namely, majoring in mathematics and participating in athletics. A significant number of students do either of these, a considerably smaller number of students do both. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize and award students who both major in mathematics and participate in athletics. The donors also recognize that the outstanding mathematics major and the person who excels on an intercollegiate athletic team will each be recognized in their respective units. The intention of this scholarship is to recognize student-athletes who may not be outstanding in either area, but still are committed to both areas and spend considerable time and energy to stay competitive both in the classroom and on the playing field. More information about these scholarships, as well as the online application form, may be found at the myScholarships web page ( https://gvsu.academicworks.com/). The application deadline is March 1.
