John C. Wheatley Undergraduate Research Scholarship

Program Type: Undergraduate

The Department of Physics at Arizona State University is pleased to sponsor this scholarship in honor of our former colleague, John C. Wheatley.

The recipient shall be a sophomore or junior who is enrolled full time as a major in the ASU Department of Physics at the time of receiving the scholarship. All applicants will be given full consideration without regard to gender, race, color, creed or ethnic origin, although preference will be given to U.S. citizen or permanent resident students who plan to undertake a research project under the supervision of a department faculty member. This scholarship requires a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00. The amount of this award is an estimated $1200. This scholarship is non-renewable. Financial need is not required but may be considered a factor by the Selection Committee.

Application must be received by midnight on the day it is due, and include:

  • Transcripts of all relevant work (unofficial copies are acceptable).
  • A brief statement, explaining why you should be considered for this scholarship, include any career plans.
  • A letter from a department faculty member confirming his/her willingness to mentor you for the duration of your research project.

Please submit all materials online. Applications (and required materials and letters) received after the deadline will not be considered, and a new application must be made for a later year.
