Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) Essay Contest is open every year to students in grades 6-8, 9-12, and undergraduate college students. Students enter by completing an interview with a woman currently working in a mathematical career.

Students may interview and write about any woman currently working in a mathematical sciences career. Interviews must be 500 to 1000 words in length. Essays will be judged for content, grammar, and evaluated by a panel of mathematicians. At least one student will be selected as a winner.

Students may choose to do interviews with women who are math teachers in high school, female math college professors, and female math teachers representing a minority group.

The contest is sponsored by The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), a non-profit organization founded in 1971 dedicated to fostering interest in mathematics by women and girls. The organization has more than 3000 members around the world.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JANUARY of each year, and the award amount is usually $500.
