Program Description:    

Lafayette's 2017 REU program is an intensive eight-week summer research experience, with an additional week spent preparing for and participating in a national conference.  Through close mentorship from their faculty advisors, small student research groups will investigate open problems in mathematics and statistics and share their work in the form of articles, posters, and presentations.

The summer program will run from June 5 to July 28.  Students will then participate in either the Joint Statistical Meetings in Baltimore (July 29 to August 3) or the Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Diego (January 10-13, 2018), depending on their chosen research areas.  For many additional details about the program, including full descriptions of the three research areas (Algebra/Combinatorics, Geometry/Number Theory, Statistics), please visit

If one of the three research group descriptions sounds exciting, we encourage you to submit an application!  First-generation college students and students from underrepresented groups or institutions without a strong undergraduate research program are particularly encouraged to apply.
