James Burkhart Physics Scholarship

The James Burkhart Physics Scholarship is available only to students in the UCCS Applied Science (Physics) PhD program or students applying for this PhD program in the upcoming Fall semester. Eligible students must have a 3.3 cumulative GPA from their most recent degree program (undergraduate or graduate). The award is based on merit. Merit will include GPA, performance in classes at UCCS or the undergraduate program in which the student is currently enrolled, and may include other considerations such as teaching experience (when applicable), and research experience (when applicable). If all other things are equal, preference will be given to applicants who are newly applying for the graduate program.

Recipients will be notified of scholarship results in May.
