Help a leading mathematics scholar advance their area of research. Make a gift

Your gift helps provide a one-year mathematical research fellowship to recipients who have shown excellence in their area of study. Fellows must have held their doctoral degree for at least three years and not more than twelve years at the inception of the award. The Centennial Fellowship has played a vital part in fostering outstanding mathematical research for over forty years.

Toan T. Nguyen is an associate professor at Pennsylvania State University, Department of Mathematics.
