$4.5 million bequested to the College of Sciences Foundation to benefit students and faculty in applied mathematics

An anonymous couple has made a $4.5 million bequest to the College of Sciences Foundation to benefit students and faculty in applied mathematics. The gift commitment is one of the largest ever received by COS, and will endow a $2.5 million distinguished faculty chair, a $1.5 million undergraduate scholarship fund and a $500,000 graduate fellowship, all in the Department of Mathematics. “This is a transformational gift for applied mathematics at NC State” said Prof. Alina Chertock, Head of the Department of Mathematics. “Thanks to this generous couple, we’ll be able to recruit the very best students and faculty who use mathematical methods toward applications in industry, engineering, computing and other branches of science.” For more information, see https://sciences.ncsu.edu/news/4-5-million-bequest-to-benefit-nc-state-students-faculty-in-applied-mathematics/
