The Department of Mathematics at Pomona College will offer an eight-week residential program to conduct research in pure mathematics. The program, entitled PRiME (Pomona Research in Mathematics Experience), will run from June 9 through August 4, 2019. The program is directed by Edray Goins (Pomona College) and Alex Barrios (Carleton College).

During the eight-week program, students will work together on research projects in arithmetic geometry. Participants in the PRiME program will receive a stipend of $4,000 for the eight week program, on-campus housing, and up to $1,500 for travel (to and from Pomona College and also to attend conferences after the completion of the PRiME program). Students must be undergraduates in good standing, although preference will be given to applicants who will begin either their junior or senior year in the Fall of 2019. Applicants must have taken a proof-based course in Abstract Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, or Number Theory. NSF funding also requires that participants must be either US Citizens or Permanent Residents.

For a complete application, you will need to submit (1) three letters of recommendation, (2) an unofficial transcript or list of math courses and grades, and (3) a cover letter addressing your interest in the PRiME program. An official transcript may be required upon admission to the program. Please address what you hope to get out of participating in PRiME and also which of the two research topics (either Project #1 or Project #2) you would prefer. (For more information about the two projects. visit the PRiME website.) We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply.

For full consideration, applications should be received no later than Friday, March 1, 2019. Decisions will be announced by Monday, March 4, 2019. In accordance with the new REU consortium rule, applicants will not be required to accept or decline an offer before March 8, 2019.
