Summer Programs for Math Majors

Each organization below is seeking applications from undergraduates in the mathematical sciences for a summer program. Most of the programs are REUs (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) partially funded by the NSF (National Science Foundation). Most of these programs are also listed in the NSF's list of REU sites in the mathematical sciences, and in the MAA's list of opportunities for students. The summer programs consist of 8 to 9 weeks of mathematical activities. Compensation typically includes room, meals, $2000 to $3000 in cash, and possible travel support. Click on the links in the table below to find more information about the particular programs. If you have questions or need help in applying (downloading forms, getting recommendation letters, etc.) contact Professor J. Hirst or Professor V. Klima.

Special Note:

Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply for any of these programs. The program at Carleton College, the EDGE progam at NCSU, and the program at George Washington University are restricted to applications from women. The CBB program at the University of Wisconsin (CBB), the NASA MUST program, and the Iowa State Alliance program are directed at minorities.
