The following two questions are optional. Our local AWM chapter hosts many
outreach events throughout the year, and we welcome the participation of members
and non-members alike. Priority will be given to applicants who participate in some
outreach activity. In the event that we receive more applications than we have
resources to fulfill, we will also consider the responses to the remaining question.

Outreach Participation:
___ I have previously volunteered for an AWM sponsored activity in the previous year.
Please describe:

___Please add my name to the AWM Volunteer list serve. 2 I intend to volunteer for an
AWM sponsored activity sometime during the current academic year.

  The AWM volunteer list serve is used to recruit non-members for community outreach activities. Some
examples of this include: serving on panels for undergrads, creating GRE review materials, preparing
refreshments for department social events, as well as helping with other events such as the San Diego
Science Festival in March and the Southern California Undergraduate Math Conference.
