The Executive Committee of the Association for Women in Mathematics established the Student Chapter Awards to be awarded annually each summer at MAA MathFest. The purpose of these awards is to recognize outstanding achievements in chapter activities among the AWM Student Chapters.
Awards will be given out in four categories:
- community outreach,
- funding and sustainability,
- professional development, and
- scientific excellence.
These awards are made possible by the generous donations of former AWM Executive Director Magnhild Lien. First awarded in 2018, these awards reflect Magnhild’s commitment to supporting women in mathematics by strengthening cohorts, research networks, and student chapters.
