The Jerry Uhl Scholarship is funded by an endowment from Professor Jerry Uhl and is administered by the NetMath program of the University of Illinois Department of Mathematics. The scholarship is intended to support high school students taking college-level mathematics courses through NetMath. Recipients will be selected by a committee on the basis of financial need, academic potential, and mathematical interest. Each recipient will receive a tuition waiver for a NetMath course and, upon successful completion of the course, a tuition credit for another NetMath course to be taken in the following academic year.
