2017 NSF REU PROGRAM IN MATHEMATICS

The objective of the program is to provide an opportunity for nine
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 4 - August 10, 2017
Stipend: $4000 for the full 10 week period
Allowances: Travel up to $750; living expenses $1000; free on-campus apartment housing
Location: University of Minnesota Duluth
Deadline: February 8, 2017

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 an applicant must be U.S.
citizen (or national) or have permanent resident status.

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.

Applications will be accepted when funding is approved at
