Mathematics is about more than crunching numbers and memorizing formulas. It's about logic, reason and understanding how the world works. The broader field of mathematics is often divided into college majors such as applied mathematics and statistics. Mathematics scholarships also come in a variety of shapes and sizes and should continue to be available as the number of math majors has been declining over the past decade. Continue reading to find out more about this field and about mathematics scholarships.
With the major of applied mathematics you'll study traditional math subjects such as calculus, differential equations, algebra and statistics. However, you'll also receive professional training in a concentration such as computer and information science or systems engineering. To put it differently this major, as its name implies, is about math and how to apply it. Employment prospects for this field are strong as a manpower shortage is expected for those that can apply complex math formulas in the life and medical sciences.
The major known simply as mathematics is about the abstract study of numbers as patterns and processes. Here you'll enroll in all of the traditional math subjects. Courses like calculus, algebra and statistics will dominate the beginning of your studies. You'll also face courses in topics such as number theory, complex analysis and combinatorics. This major can be an excellent educational pathway to a wide range of career opportunities. These include any field that requires critical thinking and problem solving skills, such as business, finance and electronics.
Statistics is the science of dealing with numerical data. You'll study the various ways of collecting, analyzing and interpreting data. You'll take courses such as regression analysis, sample survey theory, variance analysis and probability. Statisticians are expected to experience excellent employment prospects over the coming decade. Jobs should be available across a range of industries, including manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, government agencies and consulting firms.

Preference will be given to an AICP member or a relative of an AICP member. Individuals (including past recipients of scholarship) may re-apply each year. Incomplete applications and late materials will not be considered. The AICP reserves the right to reject any applicant, at any time, for any reason.
The Justin Randle Memorial Scholarship was established in 2000 through donations made by the Zens and Randle families, CSUH Statistics Department faculty, staff and students, other University colleagues, and personal friends. One (1) scholarship valued at $500 or more is offered annually to a CSUH undergraduate or graduate student majoring in Statistics. Because of Mr. Randle's unique educational background and varied interests, preference may be given to someone who is changing fields (from undergraduate to graduate study) or who is an undergraduate double major (Statistics and another field).
