Physics Scholarships

Inertia. Absolute zero. Critical mass. Scalar quantity. If these terms appear frequently in your homework and exams – and the answers you give garner A’s from your teachers – you could have a promising career in physics ahead of you. But before you consider changing your name to Albert or Isaac, ask yourself this: Do you have the funds to pay for the schooling that will get you there?

Physics scholarships (and scholarships in the related fields of math, computer science, engineering and technology) are readily available to majors displaying drive, ingenuity and academic success. Good thing, since most careers in this field require graduate degrees (here are the top schools for them, according to U.S. News and World Report) and lots of research. Fellowships and internships are both excellent ways for students to gain valuable experience in their desired concentrations and earn stipends at the same time.

As for additional financial aid, there’s plenty out there. Harvard’s Department of Physics guarantees full financial support for all graduate students if they “remain in good standing and complete assigned duties in a satisfactory manner” and American University, Washington State and Ohio State all offer university-based physics scholarships. There are external funding options, too, like the ones awarded by the National Society of Black Physicists and the Art of Problem Solving. See below for some of the physics scholarships in the Scholarships.com database but for more, complete a free scholarship search.
