Summer 2021 Research Experience For Undergraduates
School of Mathematics University of Minnesota
Coordinator: Vic Reiner

Application Deadline: Wednesday, February 17, 2021
Our 20th annual REU program in algebra, combinatorics and representation theory will be held in the summer of 2021, at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.
We expect approximately 7-15 participants with the program running 8 weeks from June 14, 2021 to August 6, 2021. Some or all of the REU may occur online if it cannot happen safely and responsibly in-person.
Our participants are given the choice of research projects introduced through mini-courses in the first weeks of the program, and students can get a sense of potential topics from the UMN REU website (link below).
The session includes organized social activities (local theatre, professional sports events, running club, etc.) and mentorship and professional development from graduate student teaching assistants.

Selection Criteria:
Participants will be selected based on motivation, scholarly aptitude and potential, and the likely benefits to the participant and the program.
To participate, students must have not yet completed their undergraduate degree by Summer 2021. We welcome applications from US citizens, green card holders, and those holding student visas allowing for participation; please indicate this status on the application.

Application Materials:
- Standard cover sheet, ignoring "current title/dates" and "highest degree/institution/dates"
- a list of undergraduate math courses taken or in progress, with course grades indicated; this does not need to be an official transcript.
- 2 letters of recommendation
- a brief statement of interest in the program and in the subject areas of algebra, combinatorics, and representation theory, and any experiences that especially qualify you for the program.

Students who are US citizens or green card holders will receive a stipend of $6500, from which room and board expenses for dormitory and meal plan (approx. $3600) are deducted.
Non-citizens with visa restrictions may only be able to receive reimbursement for expenses, including room and board.
