About the Foundation
The first phase of EDGE was launched in 1998 by Sylvia Bozeman and Rhonda Hughes to strengthen the ability of female students to successfully complete graduate programs in the mathematical sciences. As the number of EDGE participants grew so did its mentoring efforts. Now EDGE is much more than a summer bridge program. EDGE programs provide ongoing support for women pursuing careers in the mathematical sciences at several critical stages of their careers. In 2013, in response to an overwhelming push from EDGE participants, we established the Sylvia Bozeman and Rhonda Hughes EDGE Foundation to support these established programs.
