About this Prize

This prize (and the Frank Nelson Cole Prize in Number Theory) was founded in honor of Professor Frank Nelson Cole upon his retirement after twenty-five years as Secretary of the American Mathematical Society. Cole also served as Editor-in-Chief of the Bulletin for twenty-one years. The original fund was donated by Professor Cole from moneys presented to him on his retirement, and was augmented by contributions from members of the Society. The fund was later doubled by his son, Charles A. Cole, and supported by family members. It has been further supplemented by George Lusztig and by an anonymous donor.

This Prize recognizes a notable research work in algebra that has appeared in the last six years. The work must be published in a recognized, peer-reviewed venue.

The current prize amount is US$5,000 and the prize is awarded every three years.

Nominations for the Cole Prize in Algebra are accepted between February 1 and May 31.
