Drs. Yu-Ju Kuo and Rick Adkins of the Mathematics Department have received $449,866 from the National Science Foundation for two additional years for their Scholarships–Creating Opportunities for Applying Mathematics (S-COAM) grant project.

This program has increased the overall number of students pursuing degrees in mathematics, and is unique in its goal of establishing a supportive connection of master’s students with undergraduates through scholarship cohort activities. Each year, need-based scholarship funds support five or six new graduate students from the M.S. in Applied Mathematics program and ten new junior or senior undergraduate students seeking a major or minor in a mathematical area.
