The Mathworks program at Texas State University-San Marcos has received a $30,000 grant from the American Math Society Epsilon fund to support scholarships for students to attend the Honors Summer Math Camp.
The AMS Epsilon Fund awards grants in support of summer mathematics programs for mathematically talented high school students. One student will be named as a “Ky and Yu-fen Fan Scholar” in honor of one of the founders of this scholarship.
Texas Mathworks is a center for mathematics education that develops model programs and self-sustaining learning communities that engage Texas K-12 students from all backgrounds in doing mathematics at a high level. Mathworks was honored by Governor Rick Perry as one of five programs in Texas to receive the 2001 Texas Higher Education Star Award for Closing the Gaps, in recognition of its success in raising the mathematics level for all students, particularly underserved groups.
