About this Prize

The AMS Mary P. Dolciani Prize for Excellence in Research recognizes a mathematician from a department that does not grant a Ph.D. who has an active research program in mathematics and a distinguished record of scholarship. The primary criterion for the prize is an active research program as evidenced by a strong record of peer-reviewed publications.

Additional selection criteria may include the following:

Evidence of a robust research program involving undergraduate students in mathematics
Demonstrated success in mentoring undergraduates whose work leads to peer reviewed publication, poster presentations, or conference presentations
Membership in the AMS at the time of nomination and receipt of the award is preferred but not required.

This prize is funded by a grant from the Mary P. Dolciani Halloran Foundation. Mary P. Dolciani Halloran (1923-1985, pictured) was a gifted mathematician, educator, and author. She devoted her life to developing excellence in mathematics education and was a leading author in the field of mathematical textbooks at the college and secondary school levels. Read more about her and the Foundation.

The prize amount is $5000, awarded every other year for five award cycles.
