The Long Island Conference Board is pleased to provide a mathematics scholarship for deserving African American, Native American and Hispanic High School Students. These students must plan to major in mathematics at an accredited college or university of their choice.  ​Candidates intending to major in mathematics and who address their love of mathematics in their personal essay will be given priority in consideration for this award. Only high school seniors are eligible for this award.   This scholarship has been a key function of the Long Island Conference Board and scholarships have been awarded annually at the LIMAÇON conference. Dr. Lee along with Judy Broadwin spearheaded this scholarship program which is currently spearheaded by Art Kalish and Bruce Waldner.  The scholarship applications are reviewed by members of the Long Island Mathematics Conference Board and awardees are determined. The scholarship was originally a $1000 award but the current scholarship amounts to $1500 for each recipient. The scholarships are partially funded by the vendor registration fees for vendor tables at our conference and we wish to thank our vendors for helping to fund this important scholarship. After the unfortunate death of our founder, Dr, Jong Pil Lee, the scholarship was named in his honor as “The Dr. Jong Pil Lee Memorial Scholarship”.
