The Department of Mathematics offers a number of scholarships and awards to qualified math majors. Math majors can use the Wisconsin Scholarship Hub (WiSH) to view and apply for open scholarship and award opportunities. Emails are sent to the math majors list each time opportunities open.

It is important to note that there are many different types of financial aid, and so accepting an award may result in a revision of your financial aid package. If you have questions about how accepting an award offer may affect your financial aid package, please reach out to the Office of Student Financial Aid with your inquiry. We also suggest reviewing the Office of Student Financial Aid’s website more broadly.

## Spring Awards
