Each April, the Department of Mathematics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville celebrates the awards and scholarships earned by students and faculty in the department. The awards and scholarships, almost all of which are supported by endowments built with the generosity of donors, range from numerous scholarships based on academic excellence and sometimes financial need, to the unique century-old Allen Medal, to teaching awards for faculty and local high school teachers, to awards and fellowships for graduate students.
Friends and alumni are welcome to attend this event at no cost. The event involves a catered meal, awards ceremony, and time to connect with other friends and alumni as well as current students and faculty. It is helpful for our planning if those who are not currently faculty, students, or staff in the mathematics department to RSVP if they expect to attend Honors Day at firstname.lastname@example.org.
