The premier award for undergraduates preparing for careers in engineering, math, and the natural sciences. Applicants are evaluated based on outstanding academic performance and potential for careers in mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering. Pre-medical students may apply only if their career interest is research rather than clinical. Institutional nomination required. About 320 awards are given each year. WU can only nominate four students. Award: Maximum of $7,500 annually, covers eligible undergraduate tuition, fees, books, and room and board(for one or two years, depending on whether student wins as a junior or as a sophomore). Eligibility: Current sophomores or juniors who have been proposed by WU’s science, math, and engineering faculty. The nomination committee cannot consider applications from students who have not been proposed in this fashion.
To apply for university nomination: begin by filling out our interest form.
