The Department of Mathematics and Statistics University of Minnesota Duluth

Supported by Jane Street Capital and the NSA

The objective of the nine-week program is to provide an opportunity for nine
undergraduate students to learn firsthand the nature of research in mathematics.
The participants will conduct research under the guidance of two program directors
and experienced researchers from Princeton, Stanford, and UC Berkeley who are
program alumni on problems in combinatorics, combinatorial number theory, and graph theory.

Dates: May 31 - August 4, 2023
Stipend: Limited funding for stipends of $4000 is available to students
from departments that will not provide stipends for their students. Please inquire about
this at your institution.
Allowances: Travel up to $800 and free on-campus apartment housing.
Location: University of Minnesota Duluth
Deadline: February 15, 2023

Applicants will be selected on the basis of motivation, mathematical accomplishments, and projected
likely benefits to the participant and the program. International students who attend US schools are eligible.

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. Sixteen to twenty
program alumni will be short-term visitors.

Applications can be submitted at

A complete application consists of the standard cover sheet (ignore current title/dates,
"highest degree/institution/dates"), two letters of recommendation; 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, any experiences that especially qualify you for participation, your
current institution, and your expected date of graduation. If applicable, include information about your
performance in math competitions such as the USAMO and the Putnam.
