The Undergraduate Summer School provides opportunities for talented undergraduate students to enhance their interest in mathematics. This program is open to undergraduates at all levels, from first-year students to those who have just graduated and completed their undergraduate studies. There will be many organized activities, with some specifically targeted at students at the introductory level and others at more advanced students. The main activity of the Undergraduate Summer School will be two lecture series: “Introduction to Harmonic Analysis” and “Oscillations in Harmonic Analysis.” The USS meets twice daily for lectures and there is also a daily problem session. A teaching assistant is available for each lecture series. There will be a lot of mathematics happening throughout the PCMI Summer Session. The research topic, harmonic analysis, is a central field of mathematics with a number of applications to geometry, partial differential equations, probability, and number theory, as well as physics, biology, and engineering. Participants in the USS will have the opportunity to meet and interact with mathematicians and math teachers from around the world. PCMI’s Undergraduate Summer School is an excellent way to learn about how to become a professional mathematician.

Application Procedure:

1. Complete a Standard Coversheet for MathPrograms.Org. Your Standard Coversheet should include the name/s and email address/es of your reference writer/s. One reference letter is REQUIRED; you may submit up to two references in support of your application.

2. Provide ONE Reference Letter (REQUIRED): On the application, fill in the checkbox for your reference writer from the names you entered on your Standard Coversheet, then click on the green arrow next to the reference writer’s name so the writer will receive your reference request by email. When notified, your writers will then receive login info and upload instructions to come to the MathPrograms.org site to upload their letters. If any of your references do not have access to a computer, they may submit the reference letter by mail or fax no later than February 15, 2018.

3. Provide a copy of your Current Transcript (REQUIRED): This can be submitted online as an attachment to your application or via mail or fax no later than February 15, 2018.  The transcript can be an unofficial copy if an official copy is not readily available. If a natural disaster in your location prevents timely access to an official or unofficial transcript, please email pcmi@ias.edu and the staff will authorize an alternative arrangement, such as a letter or email confirmed by an advisor, registrar, or faculty member, listing the courses you have taken by year and the grade that you report receiving in each course.

4. Provide your Curriculum Vitae/Resume (OPTIONAL). Applicants are encouraged to upload their CV to their online application.
