SPUR PROGRAM - Summer Program for Undergraduate Research
REU PROGRAM - Research Experience for Undergraduates

These summer programs provide the opportunity for undergraduate students of mathematics to participate in leading-edge research.  This year, one project is designated "REU" and the other project is designated "SPUR."  The difference between REU and SPUR projects is the funding support that is available.

We welcome all students to apply including U.S., Permanent Resident, and International students whether your home institution is within the U.S. or outside the U.S.  Please read carefully the information below under details and support/costs.  Certain criteria apply for international students with their home institution outside the U.S.


The 2023 REU and SPUR programs will be directed by Alex Townsend, and they will consist of two REU projects and two SPUR projects.  Project faculty mentors are:

Banafsheh Akbari (SPUR)
