*The students’ research interests range from algebraic geometry to number theory and applied mathematics.*

Eighteen graduate students in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland received 2022-23 Herbert A. Hauptman Endowed Graduate Fellowships.

The fellowship program was created with an estate gift from Carol Fullerton that honors the memory of her late father, Nobel laureate Herbert A. Hauptman (Ph.D. ’55, mathematics), and launched in 2020 thanks to a gift from Distinguished University Professor Emeritus of Mathematics James A. Yorke (Ph.D. ’66, mathematics).
