Jan Wiranowski Endowed Scholarship (Math or Math-Based Science)
Established in 2006 by Jan Z. Wiranowski, distinguished professor of mathematics and foreign languages, to express his gratitude to MCC and to support students aspiring to a career in mathematics or mathematics related fields.
During his many years of service to MCC, since 1967, Professor Wiranowski has been continually inspired and encouraged by many prominent members of the college community whose vision and faith in human potential have significantly impacted his career. It is against this intellectually fertile background at MCC that Professor Wiranowski was able to meet head on the challenges of significant professional diversification and enrichment. Aside from teaching mathematics during the last 30 years, Professor Wiranowski had also taught several languages at MCC. In addition, some of his professional work in mathematics has been published and is used at MCC.
He established this endowed scholarship, to be credited towards MCC tuition, in order to express his care for students, his gratitude to MCC and to underscore his faith in human potential. It is his hope that these scholarships will assist students who are aspiring to a career in mathematics and/or mathematics related fields.
