Bryce Mason Award in Mathematics UCR


With deep appreciation for his outstanding educational experience at UCR, Dr. Bryce Mason has created an endowed award to support undergraduate students who have exhibited passion for and excellence in mathematics. Bryce found that the rigor required for the study of mathematics greatly improved his reasoning and critical thinking, which have been beneficial throughout his life and career. He also fondly recalls a warm, collegial learning environment made by faculty and fellow students. Bryce hopes that the recipients of this award will similarly enjoy and benefit from their mathematical journey.

After UCR, Bryce continued his education in a more applied field, earning a Ph.D. in Policy Analysis from the RAND Graduate School in 2005. He has primarily worked in higher education in the field of lnstitutional Research, first as a Research Analyst at UCR, then as Director of lnstitutional Research at Loyola Marymount University, and subsequently again at UCR as Assistant Vice Chancellor for Institutional Research.
