The Lowell Edwards Scholarships are annual awards of the University of West Florida Department of Physics. The number of awards and amount will vary each year. Currently there are two awards, one in fall and another in spring. Each is for $350.
These awards are intended to financially support students to successfully complete a major or minor in the University of West Florida physics bachelors program. The applicant must be a University of West Florida Physics major or minor and have completed University Physics I and II (PHY 2048 and 2049).
Awards will be granted to students that best showcase the department and program.
Starting in the Fall semester of 2009, The University of West Florida has established new Academic Merit Scholarships designed for the best academically prepared students from the public high schools in Florida. Students who have a class rank of number one through five after the first semester of their senior year will be awarded scholarships which will cover their tuition. These scholarships start with the fall semester 2009. Bright Futures Scholarship recipients who receive the Academic Merit Scholarships can use the Bright Futures monies for remaining costs, including on-campus housing, transportation, meal plan or books.
