Departmental Scholarship Applications

The Department of Mathematical Sciences's Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarship Application forms use conditional logic to ask additional questions where necessary.

The forms' lengths may vary depending on the information provided.

 

 

Use the tabbed headers below to navigate through the information that may be required in each application.

Personal Information

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is now using a virtual, web-app for collecting applications for the Undergraduate and Graduate Department Scholarships.

To start off, you will enter your first and last name separately; an option for a middle name is included, but not required.

Academic Information

Provide University of Arkansas ID number, email, and status as an undergraduate or graduate student applying for the scholarship.

Contact Information

This is where you will provide your primary contact email and an optional phone number we can call if more information is needed. A mailing address will also need to be provided.

Academic Information

Have you graduated from a high school?

If you have graduated from a traditional high school in the United States, we will need the following information:

High School Information

The name and address of the high school. If it is in Arkansas, please also provide which county of Arkansas it's in.

Graduation Information

We'll need to know when you graduated high school and your final GPA.

Some high schools also assign ranks in graduating classes as a percentile, e.g. upper 10%, or as a title, e.g. "Summa Cum Laude" or "Valedictorian." If this does not apply to you, the field is optional.

If you have not graduated from a traditional high school in the United States, we offer other ways of explaining your situation; you may select all that apply.

Home School Students

If you have been home schooled, provide the name and contact information of your primary teacher.

Other

If you wish to provide more information about your situation, you may do so in the text-box provided in the form.

Non-Monetary Awards

These are awards you have received that are not financial gifts, but are still marks of notable accomplishments. When asked, provide details of each award including when it was awarded and by whom.

Recommendation

This scholarship applications requires that you have at least one letter of recommendation or informal notice of support from a previous mathematics instructor.

You will need to provide the contact information of each recommender (up to three) and some information about the most recent class you took from each (name of the class, level of mathematics, when you took it, and where you took it).

We have several options available for recommenders to submit their support:

Option 1: Attach a Virtual Copy of Your Recommendation Letter

This can be submitted in any kind of viewable format, but PDF is preferred.

Option 2: Notify the Main Office of a Physical, Sealed Letter

If the recommender prefers to send a physical letter, they may either send the letter to our mailing address or the sealed letter can be hand-delivered to the department's main office.

Option 3: Request Virtual Support via Email

This option will use the requester's email address to ask for a notice of support on your behalf. The email will be addressed from math@uark.edu with the subject line being "Request of Notice of Support for {((FIRST_NAME))} {((LAST_NAME))}"

You may include a custom message to be attached at the end of the email.
