The Women's Resource Center Resolute Fund Scholarship

The WRC is offering two Resolute Fund Scholarships which have been generously provided by an anonymous donor. These scholarships will be awarded to two undergraduate students annually. One student should have a declared major in the College of Science in mathematics with an emphasis in the statistics program and the other student should have a declared major in the College of Engineering Data Science program.

The donor desires that special consideration be given to students who (1) are members of groups that are underrepresented in mathematics with an emphasis in the statistics and in engineering data science programs, and 2) students who do not have financial support from their families. Students are required to maintain a 3.0 GPA and to be eligible, students need to have completed a minimum of 24 credits prior to applying.

The Resolute Fund Scholarship was started by anonymous donor who received their Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Speech Communication in 2006 from the University of Utah and is currently working for Google as a Data Science Lead/Manager for Google Cloud Business Platforms. While a student at the University of Utah, they established many friendships in the mathematics labs, and was always impressed with how dedicated and passionate their U professors were for their areas of expertise. As an undergraduate, this person was the fortunate recipient of a scholarship that left an indelible impact, igniting within them the desire to give back to the University of Utah. This individual is committed to championing the cause of women in STEM, embodying a passion for fostering diversity and inclusivity within the field.
