Description

Scholarships for Needy Students to Pursue Research in Mathematics and Statistics 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.
