The RRon Seateron 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.

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.
