  • Alice Leung Scholarship
    Alice Siu-Fun Leung received a Masters degree in Mathematics in 1975 from UC Davis. According to her sister, she held a very special place for the campus and often hoped to come back for visits. However, her work as a global property management accountant in Hong Kong prevented this from happening. In her will, Ms. Leung generously provided an endowment to award scholarships annually to graduate students in Mathematics. This award is given to students who have shown exceptional promise in all aspects of mathematics, including research, scholarship and teaching. Faculty members are encouraged to nominate his/her student or a graduate student may self-nominate his/her name for consideration.
