Our current priorities

Mathematics building and renovation fund – new space

Help us create the best learning environment for our students, facilitate innovative and important research, and elevate our position as the pre-eminent destination for mathematics and computer science study and research by supporting our new Mathematics 3 (M3) building, Mathematics Computer Building (MC), and William G. Davis Computer Research Centre (DC) renovation fund.

Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC)

Why not support the math contests and math circles that introduced you to UWaterloo Math? A long-standing, collaborative organization run by a team of mathematics educators within the University of Waterloo, the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing is dedicated to creating and implementing activities that develop a love of mathematics and computer science among Canadian and international youth while also giving teachers tools to inspire their students.

Mathematics scholarships

Graduate scholarships

Our graduate students are of paramount importance in positioning the University of Waterloo as one of the top research-intensive universities in Canada and contributing to our international reputation for excellence. The research conducted at UWaterloo is a vital driving force in local, national, and international economies and contributes in many ways to improvements in society. The Faculty of Mathematics competes with some of the top institutions in the world to attract graduate students. We cannot attract first-rate post-doctoral fellows and graduate students without funding to support their activities. The David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science established a Graduate Endowment Fund in 2005. The Faculty of Mathematics has established a new Mathematics Graduate Endowment Fund to support graduate students in Applied Mathematics, Combinatorics Optimization, Pure Mathematics, and Statistics and Actuarial Science. Contributions to either of these funds will help to build the Faculty of Mathematics’ graduate programs and research strength.

Undergraduate scholarships

Entrance scholarships allow UWaterloo to compete successfully with other institutions to attract outstanding students. Upper-year scholarships are key to retaining top-performing students, providing the support they need to successfully complete their degrees. These prestigious awards include National and Global Scholarships, Descartes Foundation Scholarships and those funded by private companies and individual donors. Your support will play an important role in attracting and retaining the best students in the computing, mathematical and statistical sciences at Waterloo.

Area of highest need

By supporting the area of highest need, you allow the Faculty of Mathematics to respond with flexibility to address technology gaps, infrastructure needs, and to help us attract and retain outstanding students and faculty.
