Math Faculty Award - Women Doing Math

ferrero

Dr. Daniela Ferrero received a $6,000.00 award from the Mathematical Association of America’s Tensor Program for Women and Mathematics to support the project Women Doing Math (WDM) during the academic year 2016-17. Each month, this program will focus on a high-profile female mathematician and her field of research through activities involving a seminar, solving problems, contests and prizes, and a dinner with the mathematician after her seminar. WDM is also supported by the Department of Mathematics at Texas State. 

Dr. Ferrero received a $6,000.00 award from the Mathematical Association of America’s Tensor SUMMA Program to support her project Yes, we can do Math! This program supports a one-week research experience for five Texas State undergraduates during spring break 2017. Yes, we can do Math! is also supported by the Office for Research and Federal Relations and the Department of Mathematics at Texas State.

The Texas DE Conference is an annual event that brings together researchers working on partial differential equations and related topics. The Texas DE was first organized by Professors Charles Radin and Ralph Showalter at the University of Texas at Austin in 1978, originally as Texas PDE Seminar.

The Texas DE has a strong democratic tradition: There are no principal speakers, all talks are allocated the same length of time, and there is no registration fee. The intent is to encourage participation by young faculty and graduate students.

The next conferences have been planned as follows.


The Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP) is connecting students with STEM funding and opportunities -- such as paid summer research, graduate fellowships, and graduate programs. 

IBP’s mission is to increase diversity in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce. They design and implement strategies to increase access to STEM education, funding, and careers, with special emphasis on reaching underserved communities and diverse underrepresented groups. www.PathwaysToScience.org

The following opportunities are available. 

Paid Summer 2016 Undergraduate Research Placements: 
Over 800 programs -- NSF REU, NASA and other paid summer research opportunities for undergrads

For Financial Support in Graduate School: 
Fellowships and graduate programs in a wide variety of STEM disciplines:
