NCUWM: Inspiring Women for Generations
When the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Mathematics was recognized with the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Math, and Engineering Mentoring in 1998, the award came with a $10,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. That grant led to additional support from the University to hold the first Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics in 1999. Since then, NSF has funded NCUWM four times, covering more than two decades and making an impact upon more than 4,000 attendees. NCUWM encourages and mentors undergraduate women to pursue graduate study in mathematics, seek mathematical careers, and present their original research to their peers.
