The Department of Physics invites Physics majors and graduate students to apply for scholarships each spring semester.  In some cases Astronomy and AMEP majors are also welcome to apply.

Applicants will be judged by the Student Awards Committee. The Committee will consider all eligible applications for relevant awards. The Committee will review your student record.

Awardees will be asked to attend the Physics Awards Banquet to be held April 28, 2017.

Please direct your questions to info@physics.wisc.edu.
