In the spring of 2017, the Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Massachusetts will award a monetary award of $500 and certificate of recognition to several members of the graduating class from Massachusetts schools.  A committee consisting of board members and other teachers of mathematics independently review all applications; the committee takes into account multiple aspects in order to determine the award recipients.

  • One of the scholarships will be awarded to a student at a vocational,  technical or agricultural school.
  • One of the scholarships will be awarded to a high-achieving female in the memory of Anne Elliot Smith, a mathematics teacher at Buckingham, Browne and Nichols, a member of the ATMIM Board and a 1985 Presidential Award winner.
  • There are two types of awards for which students can be nominated - a service award in mathematics or an achievement award in mathematics.
  • The scholarship committee tries to get a well-rounded picture of each application by reviewing:
    • All mathematic courses taken and grades for each applicant.
    • Available College Board Scores (SAT, ACT, SAT subject tests, AP, etc).
    • Participation in math competitions (regional, national, international)
    • Involvement in school-based math teams/math clubs
    • Community service, with regard to mathematics (tutoring, event planning, etc.)
    • Special recognition resulting from the applicant’s commitment to mathematics
  • Nomination forms are available electronically on the ATMIM website under “Scholarship
  • All scholarship nominations must be received by March 10, 2017.

Every secondary school in Massachusetts is strongly encouraged to nominate a student in each category. Please pay attention to the category for which you are nominating a candidate, as the judges cannot change categories.
