Copernicus Scholarships in Physics

The awards will be made to the top 3 highest combined averages in PHYS*2240 and PHYS*2330. Application is not required.

In a time when the church was law, Copernicus took a stand and defended his theories of the cosmos.  The 16th Century scholar proposed that the Sun, and not the Earth, was the centre of the solar system, triggering the Copernican Revolution and laying the ground work for the Scientific Revolution  which followed.

Amount: Three awards of $1,000.

Qualifications: Students registered in a major offered by the Department of Physics with a minimum 80% average, and who have completed PHYS*2240 and PHYS*2330 in the previous academic semester.
