About this Award

The family of the late Karl Menger was the major contributor to funds established at Duke University and the AMS. An anonymous donor generously augmented the fund in 2008. The majority of the income from these funds is used by the Society for annual awards at the International Science and Engineering Fair.

The awards are: \$2000 for first prize; \$1000 for each second prize; \$500 for each third prize.
