American Mathematical Society: “The Women and Mathematics Program (WAM) at IAS Receives the 2019 Mathematics Programs that Make a Difference Award

“WAM was founded in 1994 at the Institute for Advanced Study by Karen Uhlenbeck and Chuu-Lian Terng. The program seeks both to inspire talented women at the undergraduate level to pursue and complete their educational goals at the highest academic levels, and to address the challenges encountered by female graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. It encourages female mathematicians to form collaborative relationships and to be part of a large network that provides support and reduces the sense of isolation experienced by many women in mathematics.
