Math and Physics Fellowship

The Department of Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics awards two fellowships to incoming freshman undergraduate students pursuing a four-year degree in mathematics, applied mathematics, or physics. The fellowship gives exceptional students financial support and special opportunities to help optimize their APU experience. Fellows participate in a rigorous academic program coupled with a strong Christian worldview focus.

Yearly Amount

Up to $3,000 per year ($1,500 per semester). Award amount will be prorated if enrolled less than full time (9-11 units at 75 percent, 6-8 units at 50 percent). On rare occasions, the amount originally offered may be reduced or eliminated due to federal, state, and/or institutional policies. See the Stacking Financial Aid policy for more information on possible restrictions.

Once the student’s financial aid file is complete, the award usually disburses into the student’s APU account during the first month of the semester (first half of the award in fall, the second half in spring), or later depending on when documentation is received.


Up to four years. Eligibility for this fellowship may change if new information is received.
