The George Pólya Prize in Mathematics includes an engraved medal and a monetary award that totals $10,000 for all winners. If more than one person receives the prize, the monetary award will be divided equally among the recipients. SIAM will reimburse the recipient for reasonable travel expenses incurred in attending the award ceremony.
The prize will next be awarded at the 2026 SIAM Annual Meeting.
The prize will be presented by the SIAM President at the Prizes and Awards Luncheon. The announcement of the award will appear in SIAM News, the SIAM website, and appropriate electronic media.
The initial funds for this prize were contributed by the estate of Stella V. Pólya.
