Scholarships and Financial Assistance
Note due to the Economy- many
scholarships have been reduced in value.
We regret this.
The Physics Department gives several
scholarships annually in honor of Brown Mackin,
a former ECU Physics Professor. All physics
majors are eligible. Selection is made on
the basis of
outstanding academic performance and level in college as
determined by a faculty committee.
Awards are give retroactively at the School of Math
and Science Awards ceremony in April.
Contact Dr. Carl Rutledge at 580/559-5392 for
