Undergraduate Opportunity Awards


About these Awards

Undergraduate Opportunity Awards assist students who have declared a major in mathematics at a college or university that is an institutional member of the AMS. These funds help support students who lack adequate financial resources and who may be in danger of not completing the degree program in mathematics for financial reasons.

There is no application process for these awards. Therefore, neither individual students nor mathematics departments may apply for these scholarships. Each year the Society selects a number of geographically distributed schools from its AMS institutional members, which in turn make one-time awards to undergraduate mathematical students. The amount of each scholarship is currently $3,000, and the number of scholarships awarded each year varies.
