Scholarships and Internships
The Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics is fortunate to have several
scholarships that are given annually or endowed by alumni and friends of the department.
These scholarships are coordinated by the Undergraduate Office of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. In addition to scholarships specifically for Applied Math majors, there are frequently other scholarships from industrial sponsors that Applied Math majors as well as majors in other CEAS departments may apply for. Click here CEAS scholarships for the current list of all scholarships. The deadline for applying for scholarships for undergraduates in CEAS departments is in February. The exact date is widely publicized around the Applied Math department and at the above website. Scholarship winners are informed in late April; their scholarship will be applied directly to their tuition bill for the coming academic year.
Here is a list of the scholarships that are designated for Applied Math majors:

THE WEINIG FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP
The Weinig Foundation provides four to five $4,000 scholarships each year to meritorious junior or senior students in any one of the CEAS undergraduate programs. At least two recipients will be students majoring in Applied Mathematics and Statistics.

The Undergraduate Office of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences located
in Engineering 127 coordinates most internships for students in one of the CEAS majors.
A large bulletin board in that office displays a range of summer internships each
The Applied Math Department is contacted directly by a few companies with announcements of summer and academic internships. They are posted on the bulletin board in the hallway opposite Math P138, the office of the Applied Math Undergraduate Program Director.
Each year in early January, the Actuarial Society of New York (ASNY) organizes a large Actuarial Day event in New York City where insurance companies and actuarial consulting firms have applications for summer actuarial internship programs. For details, go to ASNY Webpage
