Institutional, Corporate, and Executive Sponsorship

Statistics show that the proportion of women in STEM fields drops significantly at every stage of career development. AWM programs address this problem at many levels, from activities designed to stimulate an interest in math among K-12 girls, through programs to support professional mathematicians in academia and industry. In particular, we are the largest, most effective organization providing support and encouragement for female students in the mathematical sciences at the college and graduate school level. These women provide a prime talent pool for STEM careers. Assuring their continued interest and success has significant and immediate pay-off for our economy.

Sponsoring Institutional Memberships

If your institution has multiple departments whose faculty and student are AWM members or you wish to target AWM members with advertising, you may wish to invest a little more in  support of the Association for Women in Mathematics and its many programs.  Sponsoring Institutional Memberships start at around $3000.  In addition to supporting women and girls at all stages of their mathematical careers, sponsorship includes specific benefits (tailored to suit your institution):

  • Individual Memberships. AWM membership for all faculty and students who wish to join, including a limited number of AWM Newsletter subscriptions and  discounts on registration fees at AWM Events.
  • Promotion. Your institution’s Logo will be displayed as a Sponsoring Institutional Member on the AWM’s Institutional, Corporate, and Executive Sponsors webpage and the AWM Research Symposium Website, and your institution will be recognized as a sponsor at AWM Events.
  • Advertising Discounts. 30% discount on all AWM advertising.
