University of Minnesota Duluth

A 2015 SUMMER PROGRAM OF UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH IN MATHEMATICS
FUNDED BY THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION
THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE and THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY

The objective of the program is to provide an opportunity for eight
carefully selected undergraduate students to learn firsthand the nature of
mathematical research. The participants will conduct independent
investigations, under the guidance of experienced researchers, on problems
in combinatorics, number theory, and graph theory.

Dates: June 7 - August 13, 2015
Stipend: $4000 for the full 10 week period
Allowances: Travel up to $700; living expenses $1000; free on-campus apartment housing
Location: University of Minnesota Duluth
Deadline: February 15, 2015

Applicants will be selected on the basis of motivation, scholarly aptitude,
and a projection of the likely benefits to the participant and the program. To qualify
for stipend support, an applicant must be U.S. citizen (or national)
or have permanent resident status. Undergraduates who are studying at a US institution
who are not a US citizen or permanent resident may apply but cannot receive
a stipend. In these cases some support for travel, housing, and the cost of
living is provided.

The exact starting and ending dates as well as the length of stay are
negotiable. There will be organized social and recreational
activities such as biking, rafting and hiking.

A complete application consists of the standard cover sheet (ignore
"current title/dates", "highest degree/institution/dates"),
two letters of recommendation;
a CV (include citizenship status and date of birth); a transcript (it need not be official)
OR a list of all college/university level courses with grades;
a statement explaining your interest in combinatorics, number theory, and graph theory,
your long-term career plans, and any experiences that especially qualify you for participation. If applicable, include information
about your performance in math competitions such as the USAMO and the Putnam.

Note. In accordance with the new REU consortium rule, applicants will not be required to accept or decline an offer before March 8, 2015.
