Scholarships

We offer numerous scholarships that are awarded annually to qualified incoming students. These scholarships are renewable for up to three years provided satisfactory progress is made towards a degree in mathematics or a degree with a heavy mathematics emphasis.

The Kinzer Scholarship, Laura Z. Greene Scholarship, Richard E. Shermoen, and Terry and Ann McAdam Scholarship are among those offered in the department. We also offer several other scholarships to outstanding students in each of the three programs in mathematics.

The Kinzer Scholarship offers a minimum of $500 for qualified students per year for the study of mathematics at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas.

Qualification Criteria

Scholarship recipients will be selected from those applicants who satisfy the criteria listed below.

  1. A "B" average in all completed high school work;
  2. Desired ACT math score of 28 or an SAT math score of 640;
  3. The student must expect to major or minor in mathematics or a mathematics related field (chemistry, economics, pre-engineering, physics, etc.) at Washburn University.

A scholarship recipient must enroll in at least one mathematics course at the level of Calculus I (MA 151) or above their first semester at Washburn. The recipient will receive half of their scholarship award during the fall semester at Washburn, with the remainder awarded at the beginning of the spring semester.

Continuation Criteria at Washburn University

The scholarship may be extended for up to three years. The scholarship amount will possibly increase depending on the monies available and the success of recipients in their programs; any newly awarded mathematics department scholarship(s) received will decrease the Kinzer award. A Kinzer Scholarship recipient may not receive a Greene Scholarship in the same semester.  For consideration of a year-by-year extension, the student MUST satisfy the criteria listed below during their previous year at Washburn University:

  1. The student must take at least one mathematics course at the level of MA 151 or higher each semester unless the scholarship committee agrees otherwise.
  2. The student must maintain a 3.00 GPA in all mathematics courses taken at Washburn University, numbered 151 and above.
  3. The student must pass at least 12 credit hours each semester.

Deadline

All completed applications should be received by March 31 for first priority. Application materials must include the application form with requested goal discussion, a copy of your high school transcript, copy of ACT/SAT scores, and (if desired) a letter of support.
