The William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition is an annual mathematics competition for undergraduate college students enrolled at institutions of higher learning in the United States and Canada. It awards scholarships with cash prizes ranging from $250 to $2,500 for the top students and $5,000 to $25,000 for the top schools, plus the top ten individual scores get tuition waived at Harvard, and the top 100 individual scores have their names mentioned by rank to leading universities. It is considered by many to be the most prestigious university-level mathematics examination in the world. The competition was founded in 1927 by Elizabeth Lowell Putnam in memory of her husband William Lowell Putnam, who was an advocate of intercollegiate intellectual competition. The exam has been offered annually since 1938 and is administered by the Mathematical Association of America. Contact: Thomas Koberda (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Undergraduate Math Club at University of Virginia is a weekly seminar and a club for students interested in mathematics and related areas. An up-to-date calendar of meetings is here. The Math Club is a students’ space having an official UVA CIO status (a student-lead organization). This provides the Club with a student managing board which helps plan and organize events. Andrew Obus and Sara Maloni are the faculty coordinators of the Club for the 2017-18 academic year.

The goal of the AWM Student Chapter at UVA is to support and encourage women in Mathematics, building a community of people who like Math, open to everyone, not just women. There are several activities planned for this year, including Math talks, a mentorship program, and panels on topics like research opportunities or grad school.
