Tensor Women and Mathematics Grants

The objectives of the MAA Tensor Women and Mathematics Program are to: encourage college and university mathematics faculty to develop projects to increase participation of women in mathematics; and provide support to project directors.

Possible projects, all of which have a strong mathematical component, are to:

Organize a club for women interested in mathematics or mathematics and science;
Create a network of women professional mentors who will direct mathematics projects for girls;
Hold a conference for counselors to prepare them to encourage women and girls to continue to study mathematics;
Conduct a summer mathematics program for high school women;
Bring high school women onto a college campus for a Math Day with substantive follow-up;
Structure a program for high school and/or college women to mentor younger female mathematics students with math projects or math clubs;
Form partnerships with industry to acquaint women students with real-life applications of mathematics; and
Provide funds toward release time to allow a faculty member to prepare a course on women and mathematics, provided the host institution agrees to offer such a course.
