Jacob Simpson Memorial Math Annual Scholarship and SageStrong-Sage Lindsay Memorial Scholarship
The Montana Tech Mathematical Science Department prepares students for in-demand, high-paying careers.The continuing rise in computer automation requires professionals with training in mathematics and data analysis, and students emerge from our campus fully prepared to excel in these fields. Offering a major, minor and teaching certificate, Montana Tech prepares students for graduate school or careers in the private sector, medicine, law, education or government.
The Mathematical Sciences department strives to create a supportive family like atmosphere. They are invested in the success of their students and value those relations both while students are pursuing their degree and long after they have graduated.
In this spirit for DayOne Mathematical Sciences is raising funds for two scholarships, the Jacob Simpson Memorial Math Annual Scholarship and the SageStrong Sage Lindsay Memorial Scholarship honoring two students lost far too soon.
Jacob Simpson found his academic home in the Mathematical Sciences at Montana Tech. While pursuing his degree in Mathematical Studies Jacob was selected by the national program SMART Scholars which proved scholarship support and contract to work for the Department of Defense upon graduation. He began a research project “Explorations of Two Cryptographic Algorithms” with his professor and mentor, Dr. Atish Mitra, that afforded him the opportunity to present his work at a mathematical symposium at Gonzaga University his senior year.
Jacob passed on January 26th, 2021 and to honor his memory and the department that he cared about deeply, his family established the Jacob Simpson Memorial Math Annual Scholarship. The Jacob Simpson Memorial Math Annual Scholarship will be awarded each year to a Junior or Senior studying Mathematical Sciences at Montana Tech.
Please consider making a gift today to the Jacob Simpson Memorial Math Annual Scholarship, donations made during DayOne 2021 will be matched 1:1 up to $750.

Sage Lindsay embodied the type of student that succeeds at Montana Tech. She was smart and curious, she was fun and a leader. Most of all Sage never backed down from a challenge, including a diagnosis of cancer.
During her time at Montana Tech studying Mathematical Sciences, Sage made the Dean's list, was part of the rodeo club, found a country swing dancing group, and joined the Copper Hill Choir. She also made an impact on each person she met.
Heaven gained another angel on January 23rd, 2019. Sage's family is dedicated to honoring Sage's spirit and to supporting future Montana Tech students that show the same sense of spunk and vitality. In this spirit, they have created the SageStrong-Sage Lindsay Memorial Scholarship to support bright students just like Sage who will bring a sense of fun to Montana Tech.
Please consider making a gift today to the SageStrong-Sage Lindsay Memorial Scholarship, donations made during DayOne 2021 will be matched 1:1 up to $750.
