Congratulations to the Winners of the Mathematical Sciences Sponsorship Fund 2015

The Elsevier Mathematical Sciences Sponsorship Fund was started to support events and activities that benefit individuals and groups within the mathematical sciences. Applications were invited for the first year of the fund and attracted a total of 36 entries.

The eight successful applicants have been awarded funds ranging from US$700 to US$5,000 for their respective projects. We would like to thank all the applicants for taking the time to apply and we wish the winners success in their projects.
