AWM Student ChapterYou have reached the Association for Women in Mathematics Student Chapter at Northeastern!
Who are we?
In the Fall of 2019, Northeastern University’s math department and the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) supported the development of the first Northeastern AWM Student Chapter. The formation of the chapter was spearheaded by four undergraduates studying mathematics with the goal of creating awareness to the underrepresentation of women in STEM, and more specifically, in mathematics. Since the inception of the chapter, 87 undergraduates have joined the student group, with this number expected to increase after graduate student outreach. The chapter’s mission coincides with AWM’s community mission statement, “We hope our AWM Student chapters will become communities with an awareness of and sensitivity to the unique features – both positive and negative – of promoting gender equity in the mathematical community. Our aim is in reducing barriers for historically under-represented gender identities and gender expressions. To this end, the AWM community strongly stands by its nondiscrimination statement to create a supportive environment for all.”

The Arizona Winter School is hosting a Virtual School on Number Theory from January 25 – April 30, 2021. This online workshop for undergraduates and graduate students will introduce students to several fundamental number theory topics. Our hope is to expose students who are enthusiastic about math but may not know much number theory to new and exciting mathematics and prepare and encourage them to pursue further studies in this and related areas. The 12-week long event will feature 4 speakers giving 6 lectures each, and will center around facilitated small group interactions and problem-solving. We are offering students fellowships of up to $400 to participate in the school.
