“I am super glad to be in a position to help and will continue to do so in the future. UNC Charlotte scholarships and the math department staff helped get me to where I am and I am happy to help support future generations of women!

The department has designated the following initiatives as current funding priorities:

  • Undergraduate Math Student Scholarships
  • Graduate Math Student Scholarships
  • Global Engagement of Math Students
  • Math Department Initiatives
  • Math Staff Development and Recognition

Your gift will enable the department to increase student scholarships, develop and maintain strong programs, improve the students’ college experience, strengthen the relationship with alumni and attract high-potential students at the undergraduate, Master’s and PhD levels.

The generosity of our alumni and the companies hiring our graduates is critical to provide an outstanding education for our students and create programs to build expertise in new areas.

All gifts, regardless of the amount, are greatly appreciated.
