When applying for scholarships, please keep in mind that financial assistance from all sources during the academic year (September thru August) factors into the ongoing review of your financial aid eligibility now and in the future. This includes periods when you may not be actively enrolled in courses, and includes the spring/summer term following graduation. If your total financial aid, including any new offer, exceeds your eligibility for financial assistance this academic year, your aid may be limited in a future term or reduced from previously received assistance. You can learn more about financial aid terms and conditions on the Office of Financial Aid's website. If you have questions or want to consult with someone about your particular situation, please contact OFA.

To qualify, you must be a current undergraduate mathematics majors with less than 4 terms left to complete your undergraduate degree. You must be declared in Mathematics and have documented financial need.
This scholarship is intended to help students facing financial hardship due to an unforeseen dire circumstance. Examples include sudden illness, loss of an immediate family member, major accidents, and natural disasters. Poor financial choices do not constitute an emergency (e.g. credit card debt, poor use of financial aid funding, loans of your need-based aid to friends or family). This scholarship is not intended to supplement a student's financial aid package, and we cannot award funds beyond what a student's aid package allows.
For qualified Math students, the scholarship can be used to cover educational expenses (tuition, fees, room and board, books, etc.) and non-educational expenses (food, utility bills, prescriptions, emergency travel, health insurance, medical bills, etc.) as long as the student has experienced a recent unexpected emergency. Please be sure to itemize any incurred expenses that you would like us to consider for emergency funding.
