The Claremont Colleges, with funding from the National Science Foundation, has hosted a Research Experiences for Undergraduates site for the last three summers (2005, 2006, 2007). Our original NSF grant has expired and we have applied for a new grant to continue our REU. Assuming we are funded, our 2008 summer program will involve a total of 10 students working with 5 faculty members at Harvey Mudd, Pomona, and Pitzer Colleges for 8 weeks. In addition to working on an exciting research project in mathematics, students will participate in workshops designed to introduce them to various aspects of a career in the mathematical sciences. A weekly speaker series and numerous social activities will round out the program. Participants will be encouraged to present their findings at a meeting of one of the mathematical professional societies.
The program is open to US citizens or permanent residents of the US or its possessions who are enrolled in undergraduate degree programs. Women and members of traditionally underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply. Students will receive a summer stipend, as well as on-campus housing and meals at no cost. Funds are available for travel expenses and for later participation in mathematics conferences.PLEASE WATCH OUR NEW WEBSITE FOR UPDATED INFORMATION FOR SUMMER 2008
