Ryan Keane Awarded Cynthia Bossart and James Efron Scholarship

Ryan Welisch Keane was recently nominated by the School of Mathematics for the College of Sciences Bossart Award. He was selected by a panel of faculty to receive this award in recognition of his accomplishments at Tech. Ryan is an outstanding undergraduate student majoring in Discrete Mathematics and in Computer Science. He is a senior by total hours earned, but will not graduate from Georgia Tech until Spring 2015. At that time he will receive a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Computer Science and BS in Discrete Mathematics. His undergraduate research included 3 semesters working with Dr. Dana Randall in Computer Science focsing primarily on Markov Chain analysis and study. This Spring 2014 Ryan is participating in the Budapest Semester in Mathematics (BSM). BSM is considered by many as one of the top undergraduate study abroad programs in mathematics. Ryan is working with Dr. Alex Kuronya of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics studying Algebraic Geometry.

This award is presented to a top out-of-state student studying in the college. It consists of a $900 financial aid award that is available while the receipients are registered at Georgia Tech in the 2014-5 academic year. The award will be administered by the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.

In recognition of this award, Ryan is invited to lunch with the members of the College of Sciences Advisory Board (CoSAB) as well as invited to attend the GT Student Honors Luncheon.
