Summer 2011 dates: May 31, 2011 - July 22, 2011
The Bard College REU in Mathematics & Computation is an eight week summer program in which undergraduates work in groups with individual faculty members on active and current research projects in pure and applied mathematics, mathematical physics, and mathematical computation.
Participating students will receive a stipend of $3200, free double-occupancy on-campus housing, an allowance for food, and up to $800 in travel expenses. This financial support and free housing is available only to U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
We welcome applications from both current sophomores and juniors, including students who have decided to major in mathematics as late as their junior year and students who are undecided about a career in mathematics. Applicants must not yet have graduated with an undergraduate degree at the time of the REU.
Women and underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
Due to National Science Foundation restrictions, financial support is available only to U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Students who are not eligible for financial support are still welcome to apply, provided they can obtain alternative funding from their home institution or another source.
We plan to accept up to eight students, subject to funding. Accepted students will be notified in March.
You can apply for up to two of these projects. You will be asked for your first and second choice projects on the application form.
