Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships are among the most competitive and well-known math and science scholarships for the upper-crust of academia. Students must apply through participating colleges and universities, to earn these government-backed awards. Barry Goldwater Scholars are juniors and seniors enrolled in undergraduate programs that lead to science, technology, engineering and mathematics degrees. A few hundred awards are dispensed annually, to academically outstanding students. Awards are each valued up to $7500.

The American Physical Society invites African American, Hispanic or Native American high school and undergraduate students to apply for scholarship funds applicable to their college expenses. Awards vary in amount, and all scholarships are decided on the basis of academic merit.


The American Association of Physics Teachers sponsors the Barbara Lotze Scholarship for Future Teachers. The program is open to undergraduate students pursuing a career teaching high school level physics. Awards are $2000, and are renewable for up to four years.

APS/IBM Research Internship for Undergraduate Women - Amount: $2,500 - While strides have been made across the board to shatter the glass ceilings that impede the achievement of women in professional settings, the study of physical science still has a major problem with female participation. According to the National Girls Collaborative Project, women made up just 39% of those who graduated with a physics degree in 2013.

Department of Defense SMART Program - That’s right, the Department of Defense has a scholarship program! The SMART (Science, Mathematics and Research for Transformation) program is one of the best opportunities young physics majors have to both work in a professional setting and boost their credentials. Imagine how good “United States Department of Defense” looks on a resume! $22,000 to $38,000

Society of Physics Students Scholarships - The SPS (Society of Physics Students) has myriad opportunities for their members to explore when it comes to scholarships. While every individual award has a specific amount of money as a reward, most of the prizes hover around $2,000. The awards take into consideration criteria like financial necessities, leadership, and academic prowess.
