Honours & Awards

We strive to promote and reward outstanding teachers and students of mathematics. Not only do we recognize those who inspire and instil in students a love for mathematics, we also enable and encourage undergraduate mathematics students to go above and beyond their potential in CUHK.

We also shine a spotlight on researchers – teachers and students alike – for extending the frontiers of the mathematical sciences and advancing the fundamental understanding of our many-splendoured world.
