Support the Royster Arts and Sciences Graduate Award Fund
The Royster Arts and Sciences Graduate Award Fund was established to honor the work of Dr. Wimberly C. Royster. Dr. Royster was a leader on campus for over 50 years. He chaired the Department of Mathematics in 1963, then became Director of the School of Mathematical Sciences, then Dean of the College of Sciences, followed by the Dean of the Graduate School and Vice Chancellor for Research. Under his leadership, the Department of Mathematics was awarded major funding from the National Science Foundation in 1968 and that provided the impetus for one of the institution's most distinguished research and graduate education programs which continues with that reputation to this day.
The Royster Arts and Sciences Graduate Award supports outstanding graduate students, and your gift to this fund helps honor Dr. Royster's service and commitment to graduate education.
