Richard G. Stoner Memorial Scholarship for Undergraduate Physics Majors

Program Type: Undergraduate

Professor Stoner was chair of the ASU Department of Physics and Astronomy for ten years, a dedicated teacher, and a founding member of the Arizona section of the American Association of Physics Teachers. The scholarship is supported by the income from funds donated by ASU Department of Physics faculty members in his memory.

ASU undergraduate physics majors and those who will soon become ASU physics majors are eligible to apply for the Richard G. Stoner Memorial Scholarship for Undergraduate Physics Majors. Recipients are selected primarily on the basis of probable success in the major and secondarily on financial need. All other things being equal, applicants planning careers that will include physics teaching at any level will be given preference. The amount of this award is an estimated $2000 to be split between the fall and spring semester.

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

  • General application: apply now.
  • 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.
  • Copy of Student Aid Report (SAR).
  • A letter of recommendation from one of your current or former teachers/professors.

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.

Please contact Morgan Texeira, Texeira@asu.edu with any questions.
