Summer Programs for Math Students

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 semester and summer programs, which appears as a link on their page about undergraduate research. The summer programs consist of 8 to 9 weeks of mathematical activities. Compensation typically includes room, meals, a multi-thousand dollar stipend, 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.
