Student Speaker Competition
Each spring the CMC3 Foundation honors one full time California community college student who has investigated a topic or application in mathematics. The selected student gives a 20-minute presentation on their work at the Spring Conference. That student also receives a $500 scholarship, made possible by generous donations from members like you!
We will forever be extremely greatful to Debra Landre for providing the funds for this scholarship for many, many years. Despite the fact that we were not able to hold the conference, Debra made it possible for us to award the 2020 speaker scholarship. Please help us continue to offer this fantastic opportunity in the future to our students.
Please consider donating to the CMC3 foundation.
