Current students must apply to be eligible for the Boeing, Regan, Costigan, and Circle of Five Scholarships. The Boeing application is generally due in early November, and the Regan, Costigan, and Circle of Five application is due in March. Applications are handled through the online Scholarship Suite tool available through the SLU portal.
Decisions on these awards are made by math/stat department faculty, and are separate from general scholarships and awards that the university manages for both incoming and existing students.
Past winners of these awards include many of the finest students to graduate from this department.
