AWM Student Chapter Award

The University of Oregon Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics has been chosen to receive the 2018 Chapter Award for Scientific Excellence. The purpose of this award is 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 by highlighting women in mathematics or by demonstrating the power and fascination of mathematics. Our chapter was recognized primarily for its Distinguished Lecture Series. Congratulations to all members of our AWM Student Chapter.
