This award is being set up to honour Dr. Emmy Noether, a German mathematician who is known for her ground- breaking contributions in the fields of abstract algebra and theoretical physics, including work on Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Throughout her life, Emmy Noether overcame tremendous gender barriers to undertake studies, research and teaching within her field. Like other Jewish academics at the time, she was dismissed from her professorship at the University of Göttingten in Germany, and came to Bryn Mawr College in the US in 1933. She passed away from cancer in 1935.
