The Robert Gordon Scholarship Endowment in Mathematics


This scholarship aims to reward students majoring in mathematics.  Anyone may gift to this endowment. The endowment that funds this scholarship was established by the wishes of Katherine Gordon, to honor the memory of her husband, Robert Gordon.  Katherine was a UA alumna who served as a US Navy nurse during WWII, studied library science, and served as a librarian at a junior high in Nogales for 15 years, until her retirement.
