$10,000 – The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial support to college students preparing for teaching secondary school mathematics. For 2019-2020, one scholarship, with a maximum value of $10,000, will be awarded to a person currently completing their sophomore year of college, scheduling for full-time study at a four- or five-year college or university in the next academic year, and pursuing a career goal of becoming a certified teacher of secondary school mathematics. These scholarships are named in recognition of the outstanding contributions to mathematics education made by professors Frank Demana and Bert K. Waits of the Ohio State University.
To apply for the scholarship, a written proposal must be submitted that includes evidence of the applicant’s past academic achievement in a college or university and the applicant’s commitment to pursue a teaching career in secondary school mathematics. This scholarship can be applied to tuition, fees, course materials, and other expenses directly related to the recipient’s academic program of study. Any acquisition of equipment must support the applicant’s plan of study but not require more than 10 percent, or $1,000, of the entire scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded in two phases, with $5,000 for the recipient’s third year of full-time study, and $5,000 for the recipient’s fourth year of full-time study.
