Honors, Awards and Scholarships

Every semester, we grant to our best graduating majors a distinction called “honors”. Learn about graduation honors from this page.

The department hosts a local chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon, the National Mathematics Honor Society.

In addition to departmental graduation honors, the department grants several awards and scholarships each year to students who have made outstanding achievements in mathematical sciences. These awards include the following.

  • Award for Excellence in Mathematical Sciences – presented to outstanding graduating seniors majoring in mathematical sciences.
  • Actuarial Science Award – presented to actuarial science students with academic excellence.
  • Helen P. Beard Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Mathematics – established by Gerald Miller '67 in honor of Professor Emeritus Helen Pearl Beard, who retired in 1982 and passed away in January of 2004 at the age of 88. Presented to a junior or senior major who demonstrates qualities exemplified by Professor Beard.
  • Lawrence I. Wilkins Scholarship – awarded to a Harpur student majoring in math with academic excellence. Recipients are selected in the Spring for the following academic year.
  • Miguel Arcones Memorial Award – established in 2013 to honor the memory of Professor Miguel Arcones. Awarded to a graduating senior who has demonstrated academic excellence. Preference will be given to a student in the actuarial program.
  • Award for Putnam Competition and Problem Solving – presented to undergraduate majors in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics who participated in and received good results in the Putnam Mathematics Competition and/or the Problem of the Week problem-solving series.

Many awards are made possible because of donations from our alumni and friends.
