To commemorate the passing of Dr. George McNulty this past June, the University has created the George McNulty Endowed Fellowship Fund. The purpose of this Fund is to provide support for a fellowship in the Department of Mathematics with a preference for students who are pursuing a Ph.D. in Mathematics. If there are no Ph.D. - seeking students in the Mathematics Department, the fellowship may be given to a graduate student in mathematics.
