Morris and Miriam Marden Undergraduate Award in Mathematics

The Morris and Miriam Marden Undergraduate Award in Mathematics is given to one or more outstanding majors in the Department of Mathematical Sciences: math, data science, actuarial science, & applied math and computer science. Priority in the selection process will be given to students who submit an outstanding research paper on a mathematical topic. Both quality of exposition and mathematical content will be evaluated. The paper need not be written specifically for the Marden Award; papers originally written for coursework, independent study, or other reasons are acceptable. Students who choose to not submit a paper may also be considered based on their academic record at the discretion of the faculty review committee.

Applications are typically accepted in April each year.
