The Summer Undergraduate Applied Mathematics Institute (SUAMI) is an eight-week summer research program for undergraduate students. The program will be held on the campus of Carnegie Mellon University from May 30 through July 22, 2023.

The goals of SUAMI are twofold: (1) to expose students to the nature, culture, and rigors of research pure and applied mathematics by working on a research project in collaboration with other program participants with faculty and postdoctoral mentors; (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, as well as inform them about other possible career paths in mathematics. SUAMI is part of the Summer Scholars 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.

In 2023, SUAMI will feature projects in number theory, partial differential equations, and discrete mathematics. More information about the projects and mentors will be posted at the SUAMI homepage.

We are particularly interested in including women and individuals from other groups underrepresented in higher mathematics. Your application should include a statement (at most two pages in length) that explains
  • why you are interested in participating in SUAMI
  • what research topic(s) you would be interested in working on
  • a description of any obstacles or challenges that you have faced and overcome in your pursuit of studying mathematics
Applications should also include a transcript, CV, and contact information for two references. Participating students will receive a $4,800 stipend, on-campus housing, a meal allowance, and reimbursement for domestic round-trip travel to and from Pittsburgh.

The application deadline is February 15. Late applications will be considered until all spots in the program are filled.
