The Executive Committee of the Association for Women in Mathematics has established the AWM-Sadosky Prize in Analysis. First presented in 2014, the prize will be awarded every other year. The purpose of the award is to highlight exceptional research in analysis by a woman early in her career. The field will be broadly interpreted to include all areas of analysis. Candidates should be women, based at US institutions who are within 10 years of receiving their PhD, or having not yet received tenure, at the nomination deadline.

The Executive Committee of the Association for Women in Mathematics has established the AWM-Microsoft Research Prize in Algebra and Number Theory. First presented in 2014, the prize will be awarded every other year. The purpose of the award is to highlight exceptional research in some area of algebra by a woman early in her career. The field will be broadly interpreted to include number theory, cryptography, combinatorics and other applications, as well as more traditional areas of algebra. Candidates should be women, based at US institutions who are within 10 years of receiving their PhD, or having not yet received tenure, at the nomination deadline. The AWM-Microsoft Research Prize serves to highlight to the community outstanding contributions by women in the field and to advance the careers of the prize recipients. The award is made possible by a generous contribution from Microsoft Research. For more information, please click here.
Association for Women in Mathematics is co-sponsoring a special panel
presentation, The Mathematics and Mathematicians BehindHidden Figures, at
the JMM, Wednesday January 4, 2017, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
first-hand from the author who uncovered the mathematical contributions of
African-American women whose achievements launched them to the forefront of
space flight. Learn about their preparation, persistence in the face of
social and political obstacles, and unconventional career paths that led to
seminal contributions within the U.S. space program.
Moderated byTanya Moore, co-founder
of the Infinite Possibilities Conference, the panel features:
Shetterly, author ofHidden
Darden, leader of the Sonic Boom Team at NASA
the mathematics of “computer” Dorothy Hoover fromUlrica Wilson, Associate Professor
of Mathematics, Morehouse College
Sponsored by: American Mathematical Society, Association for
Women in Mathematics, Building Diversity in Science, Enhancing Diversity in
Graduate Education, National Association of Mathematicians
ESSAY CONTEST: BIOGRAPHIES OF CONTEMPORARY WOMEN IN MATHEMATICS
Open to: Students Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, College Undergraduates
To increase awareness of women's ongoing contributions to the mathematical sciences, the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) and Math for America are co-sponsoring an essay contest for biographies of contemporary women mathematicians and statisticians in academic, industrial, and government careers.
The essays will be based primarily on an interview with a woman currently working in a mathematical sciences career. This contest is open to students in the following categories: Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, and College Undergraduate. At least one winning submission will be chosen from each category. Winners will receive a prize, and their essays will be published online at the AWM web site. Additionally, a grand prize winner will have his or her submission published in the AWM Newsletter.
