We live in the information era, where technology underpins so much of our daily lives. Technology influences the way we communicate, learn, entertain. And it has an increasing influence on key issues like the economy, foreign policy, privacy, healthcare, and more.
With this drastic boom in tech, innovators in math are needed now more than ever to solve complex problems surrounding tech in order to continue driving the information era forward toward the goals we’ve set for ourselves.
We can all benefit from having more women entering the math field. Gender diversity introduces new perspectives, enabling us to better solve the complex problems of the future and provide those who have often been overlooked the opportunity to succeed in these fields.
To contribute to a better future for women in math, the Learner Women in Mathematics Scholarship will be awarded to one woman who is pursuing a career in a math-related field and is extremely ambitious about the feats she will accomplish in her career.
"I am an incoming junior at the University of California, Merced, majoring in Cognitive Science and minoring in Applied Mathematics. After college, I plan to use the skills I acquire in my classes to pursue a career in tech.
I am very passionate about learning and determined to succeed, especially in academics. In my first two years of college, I made the Chancellor’s Honor List, which recognizes students who maintain a high GPA throughout the school year."
