    Scholarships Creating Opportunities for Applying Mathematics (S-COAM) Program

    This program encourages students majoring in STEM disciplines to include additional mathematics in their degree program. Each year, need-based scholarship funds support 10 new junior or senior undergraduate students who add a minor in a mathematical area to their science major or who major in a mathematical area. Additionally, five or six new graduate students are supported in the MS in Applied Mathematics program.
