The objective of the REU 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, graph theory and number theory.
: June 5- August 11, 2016
: $4000 for the full 10 week period
: Travel up to $700; living expenses $1000; on-campus
: University of Minnesota Duluth
: February 10, 2016
Applicants will be selected on the basis of motivation, scholarly aptitude,
and a projection of the likely benefits to the participant. To be eligible
for a stipend you must not have graduated by the time you participate and you
must be a US citizen or permanent resident. The exact starting and ending dates
as well as the length of stay are negotiable.
Undergraduate who are studying at a U.S. institution who are a not US citizen
nor permanent resident may apply but cannot receive a stipend. In these cases
support for travel, housing, and the cost of living is provided.
Participants are expected to spend a minimum of 40 hours per week on their
research. There will be organized social and recreational activities such
as biking, rafting and hiking.
A complete application consists of the standard cover sheet
, two letters of
recommendation, a transcript (it need not be official) OR a list of
all college/university level courses with grades, and a statement that
describes your academic interests, your long-term career plans, performance
in math competitions, previous research experiences, and
others experiences that especially qualify you for participation.

Applicants are not required to accept or decline an offer before March 8, 2016.
