Tensor Talk at Undergraduate Research Day
Research Day provided the perfect platform for Tensor program to inform students about the abundant but perhaps unknown opportunities available to them. Dr. James Airozo, Director of Student Academic Awards, CUNY took the opportunity to inform students of scholarships in his talk Scholarships at CUNY and Beyond. This presentation focused on national, competitive scholarships and fellowships, primarily for graduate study. Highlights included an overview of the support services available for CUNY students interested in applying for scholarships to finance their graduate education.
It also provided information on the CUNY Prestigious Scholarships website which offers information on nearly 50 scholarships with links to their websites and a listing of CUNY scholarships winners. Following his talk, Jasmine Osorio, a now-recent graduate of York College and former Tensor Scholar talked about her experiences in a summer research experience for undergraduates in mathematical finance and how this influenced her decision to apply to the Pre-PhD program for women in mathematics at Smith College.
