The AMS sponsors annual awards that are made by Pi Mu Epsilon (PME), the national honorary mathematics society.

Prize Details:

The awards were initiated in 1989 in honor of PME's seventy-fifth anniversary. PME administers the awards and uses them to recognize the best student paper(s) presented at a PME student paper session. Beginning in 2009, the American Statistical Association joined in supporting these awards.

Next Awards: 2018
