The Summer Undergraduate Applied Mathematics Institute (SUAMI) is an eight-week summer research program for undergraduate students. The goals of the SUAMI are twofold: (1) to expose students to the nature, culture, and rigors of advanced work and research in the area of applied mathematics; (2) to give the students a taste of the graduate school experience to help them make a more informed decision on whether they should attend graduate school. The SUAMI is part of a larger summer program run by the Mellon College of Science at Carnegie Mellon, and SUAMI students will have opportunities to participate in the academic, cultural, and social programs of the larger MCS summer community.

The 2022 SUAMI will feature research projects in a variety of research areas including, mathematical finance, operations research, and discrete mathematics. There will be both pure projects and projects motivated by applications. Previous coursework in the area of a project will not be necessary to participate in the project.

We are particularly interested in including women and individuals from other underrepresented groups. Your application should include a statement (at most two pages in length) that explains why you are interested in participating in the SUAMI. If you are interested in a particular research area, you should mention that. Please include in this statement a description of any obstacles and/or challenges that you have faced and overcome in your pursuit of studying mathematics.

Dates of the program: May 31 through July 23, 2022. While we anticipate the program being in-person, in the event that the COVID-19 pandemic forces a modification to campus access at CMU, we are committed to running the program in a remote-only or hybrid format. A final decision regarding the format will be made and communicated as soon as possible.

Participating students will receive a $4,800 stipend, on-campus housing, a meal allowance, and reimbursement for domestic round-trip travel to Pittsburgh. The application deadline is February 25. Late applications will be considered until all spots in the program are filled.
