We are delighted to announce that we have received a $15 million pledge from Jane Street, a leading quantitative trading firm, to endow our Math Prize for Girls. Jane Street’s generous contribution to our foundation will be completed over the course of six years.
The Math Prize for Girls is the largest math prize for girls in the world. Each fall, we partner with MIT to bring nearly 300 young female mathematicians together to compete in our challenging test of mathematical creativity and insight. Our goal is to promote gender equity in the STEM professions and to encourage young women with exceptional potential to become mathematical and scientific leaders.
The prize will now be formally known as the Advantage Testing Foundation/Jane Street Math Prize for Girls. We look forward to collaborating with Jane Street and continuing to expand and elevate this wonderful learning opportunity for our students and their families.
