The Association for Women in Mathematics has selected the University of Pittsburgh’s Student Chapter as the winner of the 2023 AWM Student Chapter Award for Scientific Excellence

Citation: "The AWM Student Chapter at University of Pittsburgh is recognized for a number of endeavors, especially “Pitt AWM Student Seminar Series.” This monthly series features two 30-minute talks from female graduate students from around the world, is attended by faculty and students, and is made publicly available on YouTube. The seminar series has featured 38 speakers since 2021. This seminar series represents a significant organizational undertaking and makes an important contribution to the research community. The AWM chapter at Pittsburgh also supported their community through a mentoring program pairing graduate students with undergraduates seeking advice regarding opportunities in mathematics, through organized “Coffee Meet-ups” with invited female math scholars who encouraged the students by sharing their stories and academic journeys, and through a variety of social events."

Congratulations to all chapter members and officers and to Dr. Lewicka, the chapter’s faculty advisor, on this well-deserved recognition of your efforts!!
