Billiard Endowment for Applied Mathematics

An Easy Shot to Math Degree Money!

The Billiard Endowment for Applied Mathematics was developed to provide funding and support to students majoring or minoring in Mathematics at Weber State University.

The game of billiards historically has been used to describe many mathematical principles. It is being used to promote this endowment by drawing the attention of would-be mathematicians to pursue a math degree.

Funds awarded by the Billiard Endowment for Applied Mathematics are to be used for tuition, books and/or special research/development projects approved by the WSU Math Department.

Use this site to learn more about this unique endowment and how you may qualify to get money for college.

You don't need to play pool, or even like the game to be eligible for scholarship money, but it helps!    

Preference will be given to you if you can show an interest in billiards. You can show your interest by verifying your involvement in, but not limited to, any of the following activities:  

  • Membership in a billiard league or billiard organization
  • Participation in billiard tournaments
  • Membership in the WSU Billiards Club
  • Attendance at a billiard exhibition
  • Enrollment in the WSU, or other University, Billiard Class(s)

A photocopy of your billiard league or organization membership identification, letter from the Shepherd Student Union Director, letter from Wildcat Lanes Game Room Manager, copy of tournament results that show your participation, or a University/College transcript that shows your enrollment in a billiard class are some of the ways which you can verify your interest in billiards.

Simply include any of these document along with your scholarship application.

Don't worry, admitting you like math doesn't make you a nerd! In fact, it could get you a scholarship.

The Billiard Endowment for Applied Mathematics was established to help you study Mathematics at Weber State University; preference will be given to you if your choose to study Applied Mathematics, or pursue a math teaching certificate.
