If you are an incoming physics student you can apply for the Physics Merit Scholarship. For upper level students there are several scholarships available. For more information, click on the links below.
The department has also a fund to support students in research. We use this, for example, to support summer students, to subsidize travel cost to conferences, or to compensate transportation expenses for students who do research at a nearby national lab (Fermilab and Argonne National Labs). For more information about how to apply for this fund, please contact the department chair, Darren Craig.
Several students have also successfully applied from outside scholarships and grants. We are always willing to help you to prepare your application for these outside sources.
