Mathematical Sciences Enhancement Fund

The Mathematical Sciences Enhancement Fund is used for recurring expenses that cannot be paid for (or at least are not fully covered) from accounts that cover day-to-day operating expenses. For example, donations to the Enhancement Fund help with some expenses associated with faculty recruiting, seminars and colloquia, and other causes that help to maintain a sense of community and an agreeable working environment in the department.

Tom and Drew Weeks Family Endowment for Mathematical Sciences

The Tom and Drew Weeks Family Endowment for Mathematical Sciences was established by Tom and Drew for their firm belief in the importance of mathematics in success in business, education and research. The Endowment will provide undergraduate scholarships to students enrolled or enrolling in Mathematical Sciences.

Clemson Calculus Challenge Scholarship

The Clemson Calculus Challenge is a calculus contest for high school students held each spring at Clemson University and sponsored by the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences. Participants come from high schools in SC, NC, and GA.

The purposed of the fund is to provide up to six scholarships annually to Clemson University for the designated winners of the competition. To receive the scholarships, the award recipients must enroll and attend Clemson University.

Hester-Watson Memorial Scholarship

Brigadier General Hester wishes to recognize members of his family by the creation of this endowment fund. Specifically he wishes to honor his older sister, Maggie Irvin Hester Ramsey, who acted like a mother to him and her husband Robert Henry Ramsey, as well as Annie Prevost Watson and her husband Theo Watson who are the in-laws of his niece Katherine Watson.

The scholarship is a university-wide scholarship and shall be based on financial need. Any qualified undergraduate student may make application for the scholarship.

Edward L. and Virginia A. Stanley Scholarship

The purpose of the Edward. L. and Virginia A. Stanley scholarship is to provide scholarships for entering freshmen majoring in math. This scholarship could be renewable upon continued high academic achievement.

Alice Louise Gray Fulmer Award in Mathematical Sciences

The family of Alice Louise Gray Fulmer wishes to recognize her outstanding service to Clemson University in the Department of Mathematical Sciences by the creation of an endowment that will be awarded to the sophomore student in the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences who has the highest grade point ration.

Drennon/Gabet Endowed Memorial Fund for Mathematical Sciences

The purpose of this fund is to recognize graduate students in the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences for outstanding contributions in research, in teaching and in citizenship. The income from this endowment will be budgeted annually at the discretion of the school director, subject to approval of the Dean of the College of Sciences.

Mrs. Madeleine Drennon was a landlady and good friend to many graduate students in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. After her death in 1989, some of those students decided to establish the above named fund in her honor to benefit the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

Bill Gabet was a graduate student in the Department of Mathematical Sciences from 1981 through 1983, graduating with his Master’s Degree. Bill was a very popular grad student with his peers and his students during his time at Clemson and lived in one of the apartment complexes managed by Mrs. Drennon. Bill passed away suddenly in 1993, and the Drennon Memorial fund was amended in his honor.

Clayton and Claire Aucoin Endowment Fund

The Clayton and Claire Aucoin Endowment Fund was established in honor of the leadership and vision of creating nationally acclaimed curricular programs in the mathematical sciences and in order to perpetuate this vision into the future, their friends, colleagues and former students. Awards will be made to undergraduate and graduate students who intend to pursue careers in applied mathematical sciences – careers in which the tools of analysis, discrete mathematics, computational mathematics, operations research, management science, probability and statistics are employed to provide synergistic solutions to real world problems and processes.
