Fulford-Karp Physics Scholarship

Undergraduate student scholarships

Show us your talent in physics

Are you a first-year student pursuing a physics degree? Then Hamline's Fulford-Karp Physics Scholarship was made for you. By demonstrating your interest and aptitude in physics, you can win this full-tuition scholarship, which goes to the direct cost of tuition. Coverage for additional costs like housing, meal plans, or books is not included.

If you’re still exploring Hamline, learn more about our physics programs. You may be interested in the BA or BS in Physics or Applied Physics, where you’ll dive into experimental and theoretical concepts. You can choose from a number of concentrations to tailor your degree to your career goals.

One of the reasons I came to Hamline was that I received the Fulford-Karp Physics Scholarship, which has allowed me to focus on my classes and give back to the community through being a resident assistant and tutoring rather than worrying so much about the financial cost of going to college.
