  • Mathematics Department Endowed Scholarship: awarded to a deserving incoming freshman who intends to be a mathematics major based on academic achievement.

  • Azelle Waltcher Endowed Scholarship: awarded to an outstanding mathematics major who has completed his/her junior year with at least two full-time years at Hofstra and has completed no fewer than five advanced courses in mathematics. The mathematics faculty will determine a single recipient solely on the basis of academic achievement. Since this scholarship is never to be divided between two or more equally qualified students, the faculty will consider overall grade point averages, the quality of the liberal arts courses completed, and the level of participation in mathematical activities in the event that more than one student seems qualified to receive this scholarship. Awarded by the Office of Financial Aid upon the recommendation of the Mathematics Department.
  • Faculty Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Education: one or more prizes of $100 granted to qualified student(s) who have completed at least three semesters at Hofstra University, including at least one 100-level mathematics course. Recipient(s) are selected on the basis of scholastic achievement and their intention to enter teaching at the elementary or secondary level. Awards may be granted annually at the discretion of the Mathematics Department. The Mathematics Department will forward the name(s) of the recipient(s) to the Office of Development who will furnish the check(s).
  • Gold Medal Award: Hofstra University will award four $1,000 scholarships to 11th- and 12th-grade gold and silver medal winners in the Al Kalfus Long Island Math Fair, provided that they enroll as full-time undergraduate students at Hofstra. These scholarships are in addition to whatever merit and need-based monies these students may qualify for, up to being "fully packaged". These scholarships are renewable for three additional academic years, provided students maintain a suitable grade point average, as stated in the Scholarship Renewal Criteria.
