Program Runs: June 13th - August 12th
Review of applications will begin on March 15, 2024 and offers will be made by April 1, but competitive late applications may be considered until April 15.
Students will work collaboratively on group research projects in applied mathematics, mathematical modeling, and computational and data science, including applying theoretical models to physical and biological phenomena. In the application the student should choose one of the two possible research topics:
Wave Phenomena and Mathematical Modeling
Mathematical Modeling of Spatial Processes and Deep Spatial Learning
Only US citizens or permanent residents are eligible.
Women and underrepresented groups in Mathematics are encouraged to apply!
Stipend $5400 plus $900 meal allowance and $1000 travel expenses. Housing will be provided.
Program runs: June 10th - August 16th
Application Deadline: March 31st
Held Virtually in 2024
The focus of this REU is computational modeling to serve and enhance communities. Students will be involved in multi-disciplinary, community-based research projects and trained in computational thinking across different disciplines. In doing so, they will gain an understanding of the potential and limits of these tools and how they can serve diverse communities.
The activities of this virtual REU Site will involve a 2-week training followed by an 8-week research project completed under a faculty mentor’s guidance and with the involvement of a community partner.
Only US citizens or permanent residents are eligible.
Students from institutions with limited STEM and research opportunities (such as 2-year community colleges) and tribal colleges/universities are specifically encouraged to apply.
Stipend $7000 + $1400 meal allowance and $2200 housing allowance
Program Dates: May 28 - July 19
Application Deadline: March 25th
See the program webpage for more info on problems and ares.
Participants will receive a stipend of $4,500 and will live near campus at 191 College with housing paid.
NSF funding is restricted to US citizens and permanent residents. Other self-funded students are welcome to apply.
Program Runs: June 20th - August 14th
Application Deadline: April 1st
The Polymath Jr program is an online summer research program for undergraduates. The program consists of research projects from a wide variety of fields. For more information go to the website linked above.
The goal of the original polymath project is to solve problems by forming an online collaboration between many mathematicians. Each project consists of 20-30 undergraduates, a main mentor, and additional mentors (usually graduate students). This group works towards solving a research problem and writing a paper. Each participant decides what they wish to obtain from the program, and participates accordingly.
Program runs: June 16th - August 10th
Application Deadline: April 2nd
In 2024 the MathILy-EST topic will be combinatorial geometry of origami, an area that mixes discrete mathematics, geometry, and analysis, under the direction of Dr. Thomas Hull.
MathILy-EST is an 8-week intensive summer research experience for exceptional first-year college students. MathILy-EST provides early research opportunities each year for nine college students who are deeply but informally prepared for mathematics research. The focus of the program is on first-year students, with second-year and entering college students also considered for participation.
Stipend- $4800, housing and meals included.
Programs Begin: May and June
Registration Deadline: March 29th
Summer Internship ProgramThe JPL Summer Internship Program offers 10-week, full-time, summer internship opportunities at JPL to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. As part of their internships, students are partnered with JPL scientists or engineers, who serve as the students' mentors. Students complete designated projects outlined by their mentors, gaining educational experience in their fields of study while also contributing to NASA and JPL missions and science.
Are you applying to Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs)? Check out our blog post on our advice for putting together an application: https://blogs.ams.org/
If you are having trouble finding REUs, there are several helpful websites to search for REU’s:
Mathprograms.org (often the portal to submit applications)
NSF (official government website
Mathreuprograms.org - has most of the REU programs listed
REU Common Application - apply to a few programs at once
William Y. Velez’s annotated list of research programs - includes Math Ed research, a community college focused program, programs for international students, and MUCH more
Early Stage Programs: Check out the AMS E-Mentoring Network blog post Opportunities for First and Second Year College Students by Dr. Pamela E. Harris
If you are working on your REU applications, check out our REU workshop slides from 2023 (if you are struggling with personal statements, slide 11-13 might be your interests!)
