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.

** **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 3, 2017.**

Applications will be reviewed by the Mathematics Department shortly thereafter.
