The prize is awarded each year to an undergraduate student (or students for joint work) for outstanding research in mathematics. Any student who was enrolled as an undergraduate in December of 2017 at a college or university in the United States or its possessions or Canada or Mexico is eligible to be considered for the 2019 prize. The prize recipient’s research need not be confined to a single paper; it may be contained in several papers. However, the paper (or papers) to be considered for the prize must be completed while the student is an undergraduate; they cannot be written after the student’s graduation. The research paper (or papers) may be submitted for the committee’s consideration by the student or a nominator. All submissions for the prize must include at least one letter of support from a person, usually a faculty member, familiar with the student’s research. Publication of research is not required.
Nominations for the Frank and Brennie Morgan Prize for Outstanding Research in Mathematics by an Undergraduate Student are accepted each year between March 1 and June 30.
Those who prefer to submit by regular mail may send nominations to the AMS Secretary, Professor Carla Savage, Box 8206, Computer Science Department, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695-8206.
Contact the AMS Secretary with questions regarding the nomination procedure.
