The Applied Mathematics Department is pleased to announce the creation of two new scholarships and awards for undergraduate students, due to the generosity of alumni, friends and faculty members of the department.
Frank Goodman Memorial Award
One scholarship, valued at $1000 CAD to be provided annually to the top-ranked student enrolled in Year Four in Mathematical Physics in the Department of Applied Mathematics in the Faculty of Mathematics. This fund has been created by family, friends, and faculty members of the Department of Applied Mathematics to honour the memory of Professor Frank Goodman.
McLenaghan International Study Abroad Award
An award valued at $1,200 CAD will be provided annually to a full-time undergraduate student who participates in an approved academic exchange or study-abroad term. Eligible candidates include: third-year students enrolled in a French Studies program travelling to France to study at the University of Nantes or other approved school; or third- and fourth-year students enrolled in a program in the Faculty of Mathematics, with preference to students in Applied Mathematics, studying at an approved school (in the United Kingdom, Europe or the United States). Selection will be based on academic achievement (minimum 75% overall average) and a personal letter describing planned learning outcomes. Financial need may also be considered. Preference will be given to students who will be travelling to an unfamiliar country where they will experience a different culture in a new learning environment. Interested students should submit an application by July 15. This award is made possible by a donation from Dr. Hélène McLenaghan (Language Instructor, French Studies) and Dr. Ray McLenaghan (Professor Emeritus, Applied Mathematics), to encourage students to enhance their Waterloo studies with an international study experience.
A complete list of the scholarships and awards available to Applied Mathematics students can be found on the Applied Math Scolarship and Awards webpage.
