Muriel Adams Stahl Graduate Fellowship
Supports a graduate fellowship for a student pursuing an advanced degree in Mathematics. The Fellowship is a minimum of $5,000. This fellowship seeks to encourage more women toward advanced study in the field of Mathematics. The fellowship is renewable for up to 3 years so long as satisfactory academic progress is being made, as determined by the Graduate Support Committee.
Robert K. Meyer Fellowship in Logic
Supports graduate fellowships in the Department of Mathematics. Recipients will be students within mathematical, computational, or philosophical logic whom the department has judged to have demonstrated exceptional promise and has the potential to make truly major breakthroughs in these fields.
David A. Rothrock Mathematics Fellowship
Supports fellowships for graduate students in the Department of Mathematics that promote the excellence of teaching of mathematics. Whenever possible, a portion of the funds will be used to support students who are currently teaching or plan to teach high school in Indiana. Additionally, each year approximately three Mathematics department associate instructors are awarded the Rothrock Teaching Award for Associate Instructors.
William P. Ziemer Student Assistance Fund
Professor Ziemer was an excellent teacher, a distinguished researcher, and a gifted expositor of mathematics. He served twice a chair of our department, leading the department into the computer age in the 1980's, and he also served as the associate dean of the Graduate School. Suzanne Ziemer, Bill’s wife of 60 years, established this fund to honor Bill and his devotion to his students. The income is used to support both undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Mathematics within the College of Arts and Sciences, including undergraduate and/or graduate scholarship support, conference attendance, and program-related travel expenses.
