Description

Easy Match (ASUF 30006630) Scholarships for Needy Students to Pursue Research in Mathematics and Statistics The goal of this proposal is to provide funds to allow financially needy and qualified students to continue to pursue research during the 2015-16 academic year under the auspices of a SoMSS faculty mentor. We would select recipients from a pool of mathematical science majors with overall GPA that exceeds 3.0 and who have financial need of at least $5000 (as determined by the students Federal Student Aid Report, i.e. FASFA). SoMSS has approximately 600 active majors in its undergraduate programs (BS in Computational Mathematical Sciences, BS in Mathematics, BS in Mathematics with Concentration in Secondary Education, BS in Mathematics with Concentration in Statistics, and BA in Mathematics), the majority of whom are full-time students who also qualify for Arizona resident tuition. The most recent data from the ASU financial aid office indicates that there are approximately 140 full-time mathematics majors with total financial need of at least $5,000 (the approximate cost of in-state tuition and fees for the fall 2014 semester). Approximately 337 of the 507 primary mathematics majors are classified as upper-division (i.e., third- and fourth-year) students. Professor Kostelich would select eligible students for the scholarships and pair them up with appropriate mentors depending on research interests. Easy Match (McKesson Foundation Grant Application) The Grant will be utilized to support speaker, production and venue related expenses for the Mark McKenna Lecture. The grant will support the 2016 and 2017 Mark McKenna Lecture in Healthcare Management in the W.P. Care School of Business at Arizona State University. The event brings key innovators and thought leaders in healthcare to Arizona State University, annually, to speak on current healthcare issues and highlight the importance of the supply chain in improving health care system performance. The event includes a public lecture, meeting with students and a presentation at the Dissemination Conference for the Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium. Previous speakers have included Quint Studer, Gail Wilensky, Regina Herzlinger and David Blumenthal. The 2015 lecture features Brent Johnson, M.D. Attendees include representatives from the local health care delivery community, students from across ASU and members of the Health Sector Supply Chain Research Consortium.
