MATHEMATICIANS WHO CAN CHANGE THE WORLD
That's what you support when you donate to
the Fields Institute. For the last 25 years, Fields
has provided the international mathematics
community with a supportive and stimulating
environment for research, collaboration, and
innovation. From Fields Fellows to aspiring
high school students, the Institute has supported
and inspired generations of mathematicians.
• Bring in a world-renowned mathematician
for a seminar ($1,500)
• Support an undergraduate student
in the Fields Undergraduate Summer
Research Program ($3,000)
Take Elnaz Hessami PiIehrood for example. The
daughter of two mathematicians, Elanz's journey
as a member of Canada's first team to compete
in the European Girls Mathematical Olympiad
(EGMO) began right here at the Institute.
"It's what I love the most about math," said Elnaz
in an interview with Math Circles organizer Sarah
Sun at EGMO 2018. "Anything is possible; I can do
anything in math and don't have to worry about
a lot of the restrictions in the other sciences."
Elanz is one of many students who is challenged
and inspired by the Institute's Saturday morning
Math Circles. Run by dedicated Fields staff
and volunteers, the weekly circle meetings are
not only intended to stimulate the interest of
bright students in mathematics, but also to
prepare its members to compete in prestigious
mathematics contests such as the International
Mathematical Olympiad and the American Regions
Mathematics League competition at Penn State.
Programming like our Math Circles would not be
possible without the assistance of our donors.
Your generous donations have helped support
students like Elanz, and countless others in the
hundreds of lectures, workshops, conferences,
and programs hosted annually at Fields.
Here at Fields, we depend on the help of
individuals like you to help support this next
generation of mathematicians, scientists,
and innovators to pursue their passions. Your
donation to the Fields Institute could:
• Cover the cost of a graduate registration
to a five-day workshop ($75)
• Sponsor a Math Circles student to
participate in the yearly American Regions
Mathematics League competition ($250)

With your support, the Fields Institute can
continue our legacy of excellence, creating a more
supportive, and diverse environment where the
mathematicians of tomorrow can thrive. Donate
today, and your gift will go directly towards
improving our scientific programming and providing
increased opportunities and support for those who
are passionate about mathematical sciences.
Make your mark on mathematics in 2018.
