Summer Opportunities in Mathematics
Research Experience for Undergraduates - REU Programs are summer programs sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). REUs usually consist of two parts: intensive study of topics through lecture and interaction, and student research on a question/questions. Travel costs are paid for as well as room and board. A stipend is given to participants. These are all available on a competitive basis.
Mathematical and Theoretical Biology Institute This intensive eight-week summer research experience for undergraduates in Tempe, Arizona prepares promising young scientists interested in working at the interface of mathematics, statistics and the natural and social sciences for the rigors of graduate studies. MTBI is a research experience for undergraduates (REU); it is not an internship, nor will students earn college credit for participation.
International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) The International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) program supports development of globally-engaged U.S. science and engineering students capable of performing in an international research environment at the forefront of science and engineering. The IRES program supports active research participation by students enrolled as undergraduates or graduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. IRES projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the IRES program.
Summer Undergraduate Applied Mathematics Institute - Held at the Center for Nonlinear Analysis at Carnegie Mellon University, in addition to a stipend participants receive credit from Carnegie Mellon for this 7-week learning and research experience.
Park City Math Institute Summer Program for Undergraduates - A 3-week summer program where students learn about an advanced topic and work on an individual project.
Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) Summer Program - This program involves applied mathematics problems from industry.
University of Nebraska Summer IMMERSE Program - A six-week summer program to help prepare students who are about to enter graduate school in mathematics.
EDGE Summer Program for Women - For women who are entering graduate school or who have completed one year of graduate studies.
2017 Fields Undergraduate Summer Research Program The Fields Undergraduate Summer Research Program (FUSRP) welcomes carefully selected undergraduate students from around the world for a rich mathematical research experience in July and August.
The SMALL Undergraduate Research Project is a nine-week residential summer program in which undergraduates investigate open research problems in mathematics. One of the largest programs of its kind in the country, SMALL is supported in part by a National Science Foundation grant for Research Experiences for Undergraduates and by the Science Center of Williams College. Around 500 students have participated in the project since its inception in 1988.
