AWM STUDENT CHAPTER AWARDS
Awarded to: AWM Student Chapters
The Executive Committee of the Association for Women in Mathematics has established the Student Chapter Awards, to be awarded annually, every summer, at MAA MathFest .The purpose of these awards are to recognize outstanding achievements in chapter activities among the AWM student chapters. Awards will be given out in four categories: (1) scientific excellence, (2) outreach, (3) professional development, and (4) funding/sustainability.
Award for Scientific Excellence: To reward a student chapter for organizing and hosting a scientific program of excellent quality in the form of a local conference or speaker series, or for its collaborative work with nearby industry or government organizations.
Award for Community Outreach: To reward a student chapter for its outstanding engagement with the local community. Such engagement could take the form of a mentoring program for grade school or high school students, a series of programs that highlight women in mathematics or demonstrate the power and fascination of mathematics.
Award for Professional Development: To reward a student chapter for its recruitment and development of students’ professional involvement in mathematics. It could be for a mentoring program run by graduate students for undergraduates headed to graduate school. It could be for the development of a substantial program to prepare students for their next professional steps by giving talks, writing expository or research articles, inviting alumni and other speakers to discuss a range of professional opportunities in mathematics and related fields.
Award for Fundraising/Sustainability: To reward a student chapter for an innovative and successful funding model that provides financial support for its activities. This could include organizing review sessions prior to exams, soliciting support from local industry sponsors, writing proposals for university or government grants.
