Hilda Geiringer
(1893-1973) completed her Habilitation in Berlin in 1927 and was the first woman to hold the title of Privatdozent in applied mathematics.

The BMS awards the Hilda Geiringer Scholarship to promising PhD students to support their mathematical research and in recognition of their outstanding achievements. Each year one Phase II student is selected to receive the scholarship by the BMS Committee. The scholarship lasts for 24 months with an option to extend for an additional 12 months.

Hilda Geiringers's daughter Magda Tisza describes the program in 2017 as following: "The stellar record of some of your scholarship selections is impressive."

The following PhD students were awarded the Hilda Geiringer Scholarship:
