SPS Leadership Scholarships

Scholarship Provider: Society of Physics Students
Application Deadline: 02/15/2013
Description: Awarded annually to undergraduate students, usually applying in at least their junior year of study (and nominally in the amounts of one $5,000 scholarship and a dozen or more $2,000 scholarships). In determining the recipients, the SPS Scholarship Committee shall consider:

1. High scholarship performance both in physics and overall studies,
2. The exhibition of the potential and intention for continued scholastic development in physics, and
3. Active participation in SPS programs.

These three criteria are given equal weight.

Applicants must be full-time undergraduate students applying in at least their junior year (except for two-year college applicants who should apply after completing one semester of physics). Students who expect to complete their bachelor's degree in physics in the spring or summer following the February 15 deadline should not apply for these scholarships. Only Society of Physics Students members are eligible.
