The EPaDel Student Mathematical Papers Prize recognizes an outstanding paper written by an undergraduate student at an institution in our section. Nominations may be submitted by the author or any other person. The papers will be judged over the summer. The winning author(s) will be recognized at the MAA EPaDel Section's following Fall meeting, and will receive a prize of $200.
The deadline to nominate a paper each year is June 15.
Submissions should include a brief abstract, the author's name and address, and the name of a faculty sponsor, and should be emailed as a PDF attachment to Eric Kahn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
