WMEF has always sought to fund activities focused on mathematics education. These include scholarships for both high school and college students as well as professional development opportunities to support high quality, rigorous mathematics instruction in classrooms in Wisconsin. Since our beginning in 2011, WMEF has provided $2,000 scholarships to 29 students for a total of $58,000.
These scholarships are funded by donations from individuals who have a vested interest in improving mathematics education in Wisconsin’s classrooms. Please consider making a donation today!
