Rise Seniors Receive Scholarships

The Rise Program is excited to announce a new scholarship for Rise Program seniors attending college in Fall 2018. This inaugural scholarship was established with the Tom M. Apostol Fund for Science and Math Outreach in honor of Tom Apostol, a Caltech Mathematics professor, recognized for the clarity of his exposition of mathematical and scientific concepts. He was passionate about mathematics education and founded Project MATHEMATICS!, which produced videos, illustrating key mathematical concepts, used in high school and community college classrooms. Scholarship recipients were selected based on demonstration of outstanding academic and personal growth. This year the committee selected four recipients to receive the Rise Program Scholarship.
