Applicants cannot be a previous recipient of this scholarship.

Application Procedure No application is necessary.
Selection Procedure

The following criteria shall be used in numerical order. If two or more students are tied on the basis of the first criterion, then the second criterion shall be used to select the recipient. If two or more students are tied on both the first and second criteria, then the third criterion shall be used to select the recipient from among those tied on the first two. Similarly, if two or more students are tied on the first three criteria, then the fourth criterion shall be used to select the recipient from among those tied on the first three.

Criteria 1: GPA (rounded to two decimal places) in Math 114, 185, 215, 216, 285 (or their equivalent) and all math courses numbered above 310 in which credit has been earned or awarded. Students who were awarded advanced placement without credit, or with a mark of 'S' in the calculus sequence, shall be considered to have earned the same grade in the calculus or skipped courses as they earned in the first calculus course they took for credit.

Criteria 2: Resident GPA as reported by the Registrar on all courses in which credit has been earned or awarded.

Criteria 3: GPA in mathematics courses numbered above 310.

Criteria 4: Number of votes cast by secret ballot at a meeting of the mathematics department.

Selection Deadline First week in March.
Notification The recipient of this scholarship will receive a notification letter and will be honored at the Department of Mathematics Graduation and Awards Celebration.
Special Notes It is intended that this award be added to all other scholarships and grants. The recipient may receive the award in any semester or summer session for a period of two years following selection. This scholarship will be awarded to one student annually until such time as the principal permits two or more awards of at least $300.00. The decision to make two or more awards shall be made by the mathematics department in consultation with the Foundation President. If more than one award is made in a given year, the selection of the second and subsequent recipients shall be made using the same criteria, after eliminating from consideration those already selected for the award that year.
Thank You The recipient should send a note of thanks to Dr. Marshall E. Wick in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
