Waldemar J. Trjitzinsky Memorial Awards

Waldemar J. TrjitzinskyThe Society received a bequest from the estate of Waldemar J., Barbara G., and Juliet Trjitzinsky, the income from which is used to assist students who have declared a major in mathematics at a college or university that is an institutional member of the AMS. These funds help support students who lack adequate financial resources and who may be in danger of not completing the degree program in mathematics for financial reasons.

Each year the Society selects a number of geographically distributed schools who in turn make one-time awards to beginning mathematical students to assist them in pursuit of careers in mathematics. 

Award Details
The amount of each scholarship is currently US$3,000, and the number of scholarships awarded each year varies.
