The Ron Seater Mathematics Award is a scholarship award of distinction for a student who is a major or minor in mathematics at UAS. This award is based upon merit, and recipients are chosen by the UAS Mathematics Faculty.
Anyone, in particular graduates of the UAS Mathematics Program, may (and are encouraged to) contribute to this scholarship award to help future UAS students of mathematics realize their full potential.
If you (UAS graduates or any mathematics enthusiasts from all over) wish to contribute to the Ron Seater Mathematics Award (Fund #20872), contact the UAS Development Office at (907) 796-6566, or go to
the UAS Development Office website.
The Undergraduate Research, Experiential & Creative Activities (URECA) program at UAS provides opportunities for UAS-enrolled students to engage in extra-curricular research and creative activities that complement and expand upon traditional classroom learning.

The Outstanding Graduate in Mathematics Award is a student award that celebrates individuals who have done consistently outstanding work in mathematics during their progress toward their BS degree in mathematics.
Outstanding graduates are recognized at the Annual Commencement Ceremony each Spring.
The criteria for Graduation with Honors are: cum laude, 3.50 or higher in courses counting toward the BS in mathematics; magna cum laude, 3.80 or higher; summa cum laude, 4.00.
The following earned a BS degree in mathematics with honors, also included here are second majors/degree where applicable.
|Andre Bunton||2015||magna cum laude||-|
|Matthew Sperber||2015||magna cum laude||-|
|Nicole Jacobs||2014||Magna cum laude||-|
|Eric Keller||2013||Magna cum laude||Marine Biology|
|Micaela Martinez-Bakker||2009||Magna cum laude||Biology|
|James Bowman||2008||Cum laude||-|
|Joshua Galbraith||2008||Cum laude||-|
|Jonathan Bower||2006||Cum laude||Environmental Sciences|
|Stephen Perry||2006||Cum laude||-|
All mathematics BS graduates engage in a capstone research project for which they write a paper, then give a presentation about the paper in the UAS mathematics seminars.
Some mathematics majors also choose to give presentations outside of the mathematics seminar. Venues have included: The regional Pacific Northwest Section Meeting of the Mathematical Association of America (PNW MAA); MathFest, the National Meeting of the MAA; and events on the Juneau Campus of UAS, such as the URECA Art Meets Science Series.
