WAM Summer Programs and Workshops Opportunities

WAM scholarship application forms are due to the WAM committee no later than April 30.



REMINDER: Students must be accepted into the program prior to applying for the scholarship from WAM. The WAM scholarships will be given directly to the program to go towards the student’s tuition.
Any math or science-related program will be considered for WAM scholarships. Students must apply for the summer program and be accepted in order to be eligible for the scholarships. Most programs will defer payment of fees until WAM scholarships have been awarded at M3 in May. Some programs also have their own scholarship programs. Due to limited scholarship funding, only partial scholarships may be available for certain programs.
