In Summer 2000 the Mathematics Department of Pennsylvania State University will host a Research Experiences for Undergraduates site. Support for the site is provided by the National Science Foundation VIGRE grant. Participants will be selected from qualified applicants. We encourage students to apply for both, Summer REU and our MASS program which runs in the Fall semester of each year. Participation in REU followed by MASS provides an opportunity for completing a more substantial long-term research project.
The program will run for 7 weeks from June 19 to August 5, 2000. It will combine learning with research and include:
- Two two-week mini-courses
- Weekly seminar run by the program coordinator Misha Guysinsky, Assistant Professor of Mathematics, Tufts University
- Research projects
Each REU 2000 participant will recieve a stipend of $2,100, reimbursement for room and board totalling $900, and travel reimbursement of as much as $500.
Applications will be considered as long as positions are still available.
