About the Woodward Fund
This Fund was established with a bequest to the Department of Mathematics in 1986
from Mrs. Marie Woodward, in memory of her son Henry Tynham Woodward. For details,
see the History of the Woodward Fund (PDF) and the Guidelines for Woodward Fund Support (PDF).
Briefly, the purpose of the Fund is to support research on mathematics topics that are applicable to atmospheric research. Interdisciplinary projects are appropriate when the project or activity involves applied mathematics in a substantial way, beyond routine statistical analysis of data. As a rule, an interdisciplinary project should have a co-leader from the Mathematics Faculty. Any project sponsored by this Fund or activity should be of broad interest and should benefit students as much as possible.
Suitable projects include the following:
- Faculty-led student research projects or individual faculty research. Preference will be given to projects which involve one or more students, such as those organized by the Center for Applied Mathematics and Computer Science ( CAMCOS).
- Conferences on appropriate applied mathematics topics.
- Scholarships for outstanding applied mathematics students.
- Special lectures on appropriate topics.
- Support for distinguished visiting scholars whose interaction with applied mathematics faculty and students at SJSU would be productive.
