Harry W. and Janet Sine Lusk Awards Endowment in the Mathematical Sciences - Travel Scholarship


This conference travel award aims to support conference travel for undegraduate math majors.  Anyone may gift to this endowment. The endowment that funds the award was established by Professor Duncan Buell, a UA Mathematics alumnus, in honor of his grandparents. Harry and Janet Lusk graduated from The University of Arizona in 1912 and 1911, respectively. 


Harry and Janet Lusk graduated from The University of Arizona in 1912 and 1911, respectively. Their three children also graduated from the UA, making theirs the first family all of whose members were UA graduates. Dr. Buell, grandson of Harry and Janet, continued the tradition by receiving a B.S. in Mathematics from the UA in 1971. He subsequently received a M.A. (University of Michigan) and a Ph.D. (University of Illinois), both in mathematics.
