The Rothwell Stephens Scholarship in Mathematics awards $5,000 per year to an incoming first-year student who is interested in pursuing a degree in mathematics and has achieved an outstanding score on the scholarship examination developed by the Knox Mathematics Department.

Our alumni established the Rothwell Stephens Scholarship in honor of Rothwell Stephens, who taught at Knox from 1931 to 1976. Under Stephens' leadership, Knox built one of the most successful mathematics programs in the Midwest.

Rothwell Stephens Scholarship Application Requirements:

  • Apply for admission by January 15
  • You must take the Stephens Scholarship Examination, preferably during a visit to campus, by January 15. If you are unable to come to campus, you may take the exam under the supervision of your high school math teacher
  • If you're taking the exam off-campus, mail in the request for examination form

A scholar will be selected and applicants notified by March 15.

Scholarship Guidelines
Scholarships are renewable annually as long as you remain in good academic standing and interested in pursuing a degree in mathematics. Your scholarships must be applied toward the cost of tuition, and the combination of Knox scholarships and grants and federal and state grants cannot exceed the cost of tuition. You may also qualify for additional need-based financial assistance, including grants, work-study, and loans.
