The Scholarships–Creating Opportunities for Applying Mathematics (S-COAM) project has awarded its Spring 2011 scholarships.
These scholarships are funded by the National Science Foundation Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics program under Award No. DUE 0966206, awarded to Dr. Rick Adkins and Dr. Yu-Ju Kuo of the Mathematics Department.
Students receiving these scholarships must maintain a high QPA, attend S-COAM meetings, participate in extracurricular activities (such as workshops and colloquia), and take specified applied mathematics courses. Students with majors outside of the Mathematics Department will also declare a minor in mathematics.
