Beginning with the 2018 award, one program is selected each year and it receives $1,000.00 provided by the Mark Green and Kathryn Kert Green Fund for Inclusion and Diversity. The AMS Committee on the Profession selects the recipient.
Preference is given to programs with significant participation by underrepresented minorities. Note that programs aimed at pre-college students are eligible only if there is a significant component of the program benefiting individuals from underrepresented groups at or beyond the undergraduate level.Most Recent Award: 2019
