The generous support of our alumni and friends gives us a significant edge. When you give to the Department of Mathematics, you allow us to: enhance our efforts to attract top students and faculty; provide exceptional opportunities for our graduate and undergraduate students; expand outstanding teaching and public outreach programs.

## Graduate Education

Support our graduate students’ research projects, their travel to research conferences and expenses associated with the organization of math-related events.

## Undergraduate Education

Support research projects of math undergraduate students, their travel to research conferences, scholarships, and expenses associated with the organization of math related events.

## Outreach-Diversity—SAMMS

(Sampling Advanced Mathematics for Minority Students program) supports travel and living expenses for undergraduates participating in this four-week summer program for underrepresented minorities. Run in partnership with the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez, SAMMS inspires talented undergraduates, from groups underrepresented in mathematics, to pursue graduate school in a STEM field.

## Outreach-High School Students—Ross Program Fund

Established January 30, 2015, with a gift from Jacob Lurie, supports student scholarships and costs of running the 4-week program, which just celebrated its 60th anniversary. It has not only instructed talented pre-college students in the art of mathematical thinking; but inspired generations to discover for themselves the value and importance of mathematical thinking.

## David Goss Technology & Academic innovation Stimulus Fund

Upon David Goss's passing, his wife, Rita Eppler-Goss, established a memorial fund in his honor: the David Goss Technology and Academic Innovation Stimulus Fund. Its purpose is to support academics and researchers in the Department of Mathematics with their entrepreneurial academic endeavors.

## Math Department Activities: Chair’s Discretionary Fund

Supports a vast array of departmental activities and initiatives, including math-related social events, such as receptions for the Rado and Zassenhaus lectures and the Young Mathematicians Conference; graduate-student summer stipends and recruiting talented math majors.
