Ryan Sayers Memorial Scholarship




Ryan Sayers was born in Colorado Springs on July 20, 1982. Before his sophomore year of high school, Ryan earned a perfect score on the math section of the SAT. Ryan attended Colorado School of Mines, and planned to graduate with degrees in both mathematics and physics. In June 2003, while climbing in the Wind River Mountain of Wyoming, Ryan was hit and killed by a lightning strike. He was twenty years old.

The Sayers family continues Ryan’s legacy at Mines, as he is remembered in the annual Ryan Sayers Memorial Pi Mile Fun Run each spring, in this computer laboratory named in his honor, and in the lives of the outstanding students who have received the Ryan Sayers Memorial Award or the Ryan Sayers Memorial Scholarship.

The Ryan Sayers Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a student majoring in Engineering Physics and/or Applied Mathematics or Statistics, while demonstrating excellence in coursework and creativity in undergraduate research.
