The UCLA Curtis Center provides scholarships to undergraduates pursuing a teaching career in math, funding for undergraduate research opportunities in math with a focus on teaching, and establishing Applied Math Teacher Circles in which current and future teachers learn elements of current applied mathematics research in an inquiry-based setting. Your generous donations help fund these projects to encourage and advance math teachers at all points in their career.

Dean's Endowment Drive

Right now, The UCLA Curtis Center’s endowment is close to its first major goal of reaching a million dollars. To help reach this goal, the UCLA Curtis Center is participating in an endowment drive with an incredibly generous and unprecedented matching program: the UCLA Dean of Physical Sciences, Miguel Garcia-Garibay, has pledged to match donations made in any amount to the UCLA Curtis Center’s endowment fund until December 31, 2019. Your donations to the UCLA Curtis Center endowment will help secure the long-term future of the above-mentioned programs and also provide the means to explore additional ways we may help improve the future of math education.
