Programs

ALL GIRLS/ALL MATH

High school girls are invited to apply for a week of ALL GIRLS/ALL MATH offered at the University of Nebraska. The Summer Mathematics Camp for High School Girls provides a stimulating and supportive environment for girls to develop their mathematical ability and interest. The ALL GIRLS/ALL MATH summer camp has been offered since 1997.

AWM Mentor Network

The goal of the AWM Mentor Network is to match mentors with girls and women who are interested in mathematics and/or are pursuing careers in mathematics. The network is intended to link mentors with a variety of groups: recent Ph. D's, grad students, undergrads, high school and grade school students, and teachers. Matching is based on common interests in careers in academics or industry, math education, balance of career and family, or general mathematical interests.

Carleton College Summer Mathematics Program for Women

currently on hiatus

This is an intensive four-week summer mathematics program for undergraduate women who have completer linear algebra but not more than one year of mathematics beyond linear algebra. The courses will be in two areas not normally covered in an undergraduate curriculum. The students will immerse themselves in mathematics, living and working in a supportive community of women scholars (undergraduates, graduates, and post-graduates) who are passionate about learning and doing mathematics. The program's intent is three-fold: to excite these young women about mathematics, to provide them with the tools they will need to succeed in higher-level mathematics, and to connect them with a network of fellow female mathematicians.

Carnegie Mellon Summer Undergraduate Applied Mathematics Institute

Carnegie Mellon University will offer a summer program for twelve undergraduates considering research careers in mathematical sciences. Students who have finished their sophomore or junior years and who have strong academic records will be given preference. Among applicants who are otherwise comparable, admission to the program will be designed to create an ethnically diverse group of participants. Applications from women and minorities are especially encouraged. Students selected into the program will receive a stipend of $3,150, housing in university dormitories, and allowances for food and travel. They will spend seven weeks in Pittsburgh participating in a course in analysis, a computer laboratory, and working on projects under the direction of research faculty. Program participants will receive Carnegie Mellon credit. Faculty who are actively engaged in applied mathematics research and who have a particular interest in undergraduate education will provide the instruction. In order to be eligible, students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and must be continuing students in an undergraduate degree program; transcripts should be provided. The application deadline is March 1st of each year.

EDGE (Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education)

The EDGE Program, funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Science Foundation, is designed to strengthen the ability of post-baccalaureate women and minority students to successfully complete graduate programs in the mathematical sciences. The summer program consists of two core courses in analysis and algebra/linear algebra. There will also be minicourses in vital areas of mathematical research in pure and applied mathematics, short-term visitors from academia and industry, guest lectures, graduate student mentors, and problem sessions. In addition, a follow-up mentoring program and support network will be established with the participants’ respective graduate programs. EDGE 2015 will be held at Howard University in Washington, DC.   Dr. Talithia Williams is the local coordinator.
Application Deadline: Monday, March 2, 2015

Research Experiences for Undergraduates

The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel.
