Rise Seniors Receive Scholarships

The Rise Program is excited to announce the 2019 recipients of the Rise Program Scholarship. This 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 six recipients to receive the Rise Program Scholarship.
