Undergraduate Program - Financial Assistance

The Department of Mathematic's online scholarship application is currently closed. The deadline for the 2019-2020 academic year for undergraduates was March 1, 2019. We awarded $8,000 in scholarships last year--you could be a part of that next year. Application will re-open in Fall 2019.

The UNT Mathematics Department offers a number of scholarships for undergraduate mathematics majors. Students should also contact the UNT Financial Aid Office to learn more about general academic scholarships.

There are several departmental undergraduate scholarships available.

  • John Ed Allen Scholarships
  • David F. Dawson Scholarships
  • E. H. Hanson Scholarships
  • Mildred Masters McCarty Scholarships
  • Dan Mauldin Scholarships
  • Roger L. Perry Scholarships
  • Ram Lal Seekri Scholarships


The applicant must be new or continuing undergraduate student whose major is mathematics at the University of North Texas.


Scholarships will be awarded in amounts ranging from \$200 to \$1000 dollars. Recipients will receive half the award early in the Fall semester and half in the Spring semester contingent upon satisfactory performance in the Fall semester.


Applicant must be a current or future UNT student whose major is mathematics. Recipients must have demonstrated academic excellence in mathematics as evidenced by formal coursework, independent study, state and national exams, mathematical competitions, etc.

Only one application is required to be considered for all the scholarships. Not every scholarship is awarded every year.
