CMC3 Foundation Scholarships

Any member of CMC3 can nominate a student for one of our scholarships, I am now sending this information to all members.  For the 2013-2014 year we have made major changes to our scholarship program.  Starting this year, every math student at our member colleges will be eligible to compete for one of our three scholarships.  In the past, awards were made to students at only a fraction of our colleges on a four year rotating basis.  Under the old program the most talented students were often out of luck if the year they would have been eligible to win an award did not happen to fall in a year we gave a scholarship to a student at that particular college.  From now on, all CMC3 faculty members will be able to nominate every highly qualified student attending their college each year.   We will choose the best of these students to be awarded a $3000, $2000, or $1000 (one each) scholarship.  Please note that all nomination materials must be returned to to the foundation president by April 6, 2014.  We will announce the winners as soon thereafter as possible.   Links to the forms are presented below:

If you have questions about the foundation scholarship, please contact the foundation president, Debbie VanSickle.
