Frederick and Marion Steen Mathematics Scholarship
The Frederick and Marion Steen Mathematics Scholarship was established in honor of Frederick and Marion Steen by their children. This prestigious, merit-based scholarship is awarded annually to a full-time student majoring at Allegheny College in the natural sciences. The purpose of this fund is to partially cover senior year tuition expenses for one selected student per year.
According to the terms of the Scholarship, “the recipient should demonstrate the following character:
* strong understanding of and skills in the application of the principles of mathematics
* ability to communicate and enthuse others with the beauty of mathematics
* commitment to put mathematics to purpose in a teaching, engineering, or scientific profession”
A junior natural sciences major who wishes to be considered for this scholarship should send a letter to the Chair of the Mathematics Department (Professor Tamara Lakins) indicating how he or she meets the criteria for the award, and provide an up-to-date transcript (a printout of a WebAdvisor transcript is acceptable).
The deadline for completed applications is April 1, 2019. Applications will be reviewed by the Mathematics Department shortly thereafter.
