Each year, the Department of Mathematics and Physics awards two fellowships to incoming freshmen pursuing a four-year degree in applied mathematics, mathematics, or physics. The fellowship gives exceptional students financial support ($3,000 per year for four years) and special opportunities to help optimize their APU experience. Fellows serve as tutors, teaching assistants, and/or research assistants and lead seminars for students and faculty on mathematics and Christian faith, based on books such as:
- The Soul of Science: Christian Faith and Natural Philosophy by Nancy Pearcey
- For the Glory of God by Rodney Stark
- Mathematics Through the Eyes of Faith by James Bradley and Russell Howell
- Mathematics in a Postmodern Age: A Christian Perspective by James Bradley and Russell Howell
Applications for the 2017-18 math and physics fellowship must be received by February 24, 2017.
