Humboldt State University 
Harry S. Kieval Mathematics Scholarship 
for Transferring Students

To recognize outstanding performance by students in lower division mathematics at a two year college in preparation to transfer as a mathematics major, the Humboldt State University Mathematics Department has established an annual scholarship of $300 per student specifically for one or two students transferring to Humboldt State University with the intention to major in mathematics. The scholarship is made from an endowment to the University by the late Professor Emeritus Harry S. Kieval. The award(s) of the scholarship will be made by May 15, 2000, for Fall, 2000.

The scholarship award(s) will be made to students for outstanding performance in college level courses at a two year college in preparation for a mathematics major. When possible, this preparation should include calculus (3 semesters/4 quarters), linear algebra, and differential equations.

Students who have completed applications to HSU and indicated an interest in majoring in mathematics as of February 15, 2000, will be sent application forms soliciting

  • a list of grades from courses,
  • courses currently being taken, and
  • 1 or 2 letters of recommendation from mathematics instructors commenting directly on what they believe distinguishes the student as a potential mathematics major.

  • Completed applications must be received by April 17, 2000.
