Stanford University received a gift to establish a graduate fellowship in memory of the mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani, who died in July 2017.

The Maryam Mirzakhani Graduate Fellowship will support graduate students in the Department of Mathematics.

As a donator puts it:

I’m hoping this fellowship motivates many young people, especially other female mathematicians, to pursue the field and to carry out innovative research – and that people are inspired to be as humble and as globally impactful as Maryam was.
