Graduate Applied Mathematics Student, Zofia Stanley, was recently awarded the Figueroa Family Fellowship- a $1,500 scholarship given to students that have shown outstanding commitment to creating a diverse student body and improving the state of the world and its people. The university has awarded Zofia Stanley this fellowship to express its admiration for the impact she has made and the impact that she will continue to make.

Stanley is currently a vice president of the Association for Women in Mathematics and is a presenter for a few LISA (Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis) short-courses (Data Visualization in R, and Statistics in R). LISA short-courses arise from collaborations between statisticians and biologists with the aim of teaching useful statistical techniques to anyone.

The Figueroa Family Fellowship is made possible by generous donations from Frank Figueroa.
