Two scholarships, established by Alton J. Brann, are awarded to mathematics, computer science and physical science majors who have a minimum of 30 credits but no more than 90 credits. The selection of the scholarship winners will be based primarily upon the student's scholastic achievement and character. Financial need will not be a primary factor.
Qualified students may apply directly or may be nominated by a faculty member. Applications and nominations must contain both a letter from the student stating his or her goals and aspirations and a letter from a faculty member who has reviewed the student's qualifications for the award.
All applications or nominations with letters should be sent to Professor John Lutts (Science-3-178). He can be reached by email at and by phone at 617-287-6464.
