The William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition is an annual event, sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America, in which undergraduate students at colleges and universities in the United States and Canada are asked to solve difficult problems in mathematics. The competition consists of two three-hour examinations, each comprising six problems. Contestants may attempt any or all of the problems.

Grinnell College has participated in forty-six of the sixty-seven Putnam competitions:
