Undergraduate Awards and Scholarships
Harry W. and Janet Sine Lusk Awards in the Mathematical Sciences - Travel Scholarship
This conference travel award aims primarily to support conference travel for undegraduate mathematics or statistics & data science majors.
When available, excess funds may be used to award non-travel scholarships to students who apply through the standard departmental application in spring.
Anyone may gift to this endowment. The endowment that funds the award was established by Professor Duncan Buell, a UA Mathematics alumnus, in honor of his grandparents. Harry and Janet Lusk graduated from The University of Arizona in 1912 and 1911, respectively.
James R. Bunch Scholarship Endowment
The endowment will provide scholarships to junior and/or senior undergraduate students enrolled full-time at the University of Arizona and majoring in Mathematics.
The David Lomen Excellence in Mathematics Award Endowment
This unrestricted award recognizes well-rounded undergraduates with outstanding mathematical promise. The endowment was established by friends and family of Distinguished Professor David Lomen, as a memorial to his life and his many contributions to mathematics and its teaching.
The Richard Pierce Memorial Scholarship Endowment
This scholarship award supports outstanding undegraduate math majors. This endowment was established by family and friends of Professor Richard "Dick" Pierce, who was a member of the UA Mathematics Department from 1975-1990 and a valuable mentor to numerous young mathematicians.
The Rick Peet Memorial Scholarship Endowment
This scholarship rewards outstanding students majoring in mathematics. This endowment was established in 1992 by friends and family of Rick Peet, an undergraduate math major, artist, musician, and believer in the social value of advanced science studies. Rick's life was cut short in 1990, before he could enter our mathematics graduate program.
The Robert Gordon Scholarship Endowment in Mathematics
This scholarship aims to reward students majoring in mathematics. Anyone may gift to this endowment. The endowment that funds this scholarship was established by the wishes of Katherine Gordon, to honor the memory of her husband, Robert Gordon. Katherine was a UA alumna who served as a US Navy nurse during WWII, studied library science, and served as a librarian at a junior high in Nogales for 15 years, until her retirement.
The W.Y. Velez Emerging Mathematicians Legacy Endowment Fund
This award supports mathematics and data science majors in various ways, including scholarships and conference travel stipends. The award was established through generous contributions from alumni, and honors the legacy of Bill Velez to the UA students majoring in mathematics.
Graduate Awards and Scholarships
Other Awards and Scholarships
James Kautz Memorial Endowment
The James Kautz Memorial Endowment will support outreach efforts serving the Tucson K-12 school community and coordinated by the Center for Recruitment and Retention of Mathematics Teachers (CRR).
The Daniel Bartlett Memorial Lecture
This annual public lecture explores the nature of mathematics by sharing the work of renowned mathematicians with general audiences. Made possible through the Bartlett Memorial Endowment, the lecture memorializes Daniel Bartlett, a remarkable rising mathematician who passed away suddenly in 2006.
The Duncan Buell Everything is Mathematics Public Lecture Series Endowment
The lectures series raises public knowledge about mathematical sciences research done here, in Tucson. The series is supported through and endowment established by Duncan Buell who believes in the value of raising public awareness about the relevance, beauty, and applicability of mathematics in its many forms.
David Lovelock Award for Innovation in Education
This faculty/staff award recognizes and rewards innovation and creativity in undergraduate mathematics education and experiences for undergraduates. Examples include new ways of teaching old subjects, synergistic relationships with client disciplines via course development, projects that contribute in a novel way to the learning of mathematics, and other ideas not yet imagined.
