The Yueh-Gin Gung and Dr. Charles Y. Hu Award for Distinguished Service to Mathematics is the most prestigious award for service offered by the MAA. It recognizes service to mathematics that has been widely recognized as extraordinarily successful on a national scale. The service may comprise one or more activities and the period of service may have been short or long. The nature of the service has varied widely among past awardees, and includes mathematical writing and editing, advancing diversity, leading professional organizations, and educating those who will teach mathematics.
