The Vesto Melvin Slipher Foundation provides a scholarship each year to a worthy student who is pursuing studies in science at either the University of Arizona, Arizona State University or Northern Arizona University. The amount of this award may fluctuate slightly from year to year.

Any ASU undergraduate physics major is eligible to apply. Particular focus is paid to academic success.

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