Student Awards 2005
On Friday, April 1, the department welcomes its most impressive students and their families to the annual awards banquet at the Alumni House. We are lucky to have so many outstanding students, and it is always difficult to select just a few to honor. Here is the list of the recipients for this year.
Thanks to generous contributions to the Mathematics Endowment Fund, we will be awarding Department Scholarships to the following students. The selection criteria included a personal essay, grade point average, letters of recommendation, and extra-curricular mathematical endeavors.
Outstanding Sophomore Award
Matthew Stamps is the recipient of the Outstanding Sophomore Award, which recognizes his achievements early in his academic career, and encourages continued success in mathematics. Matthew will be participating in the REU program at Valparaiso this summer.
