New S-STEM scholarship program

The department is proud to announce the launch of a scholarship and mentoring program, Enhancing Underrepresented Participation in Mathematics & Statistics: Mentoring from Junior to Master’s. The program awards scholarships that will support undergraduates in their third and fourth years and for a fifth-year Master's degree in applied mathematics or statistics. It also provides mentoring and summer research opportunities to help them succeed. This program is supported by a $1.5 million NSF S-STEM grant, awarded to a team of department faculty led by Maryclare Griffin. Applications for the Fall 2023 cohort are due April 1st.
