- PENN STATE MASS PROGRAM
The Mathematics Advanced Study Semesters (MASS) program is held during the Fall semester of each year. For most of its participants, the MASS program serves as a spring board to graduate schools in mathematics. The program consists of three courses chosen from major areas in Algebra, Analysis, and Geometry respectively, specially designed and offered exclusively to MASS participants, and a weekly working seminar. Additional features include, colloquium-type lectures by visiting mathematicians and mathematical projects involving research and creative use of computers. Participants are selected from applicants who will be juniors or seniors in the following academic year (sophomores may be admitted in some cases). Applications for fall 2010 are reviewed as received. The website includes applicaiton materials, financial information, and where to send applications.
- SMITH COLLEGE POSTBACCALAUREATE PROGRAM: "a chance--and a second chance--to study mathematics in the company of women." Women with bachelor's degrees who did not major in mathematics or whose mathematics major was light are invited to apply to this program that prepares and motivates women to help them determine whether they want to continue to graduate school in the mathematical sciences. The college reviews applications on a rolling basis. For September entrance the preferred deadline was MARCH 15, but applications are accepted through July 1.
- BUDAPEST SEMESTER IN MATHEMATICS - FALL 2010
Budapest Semesters in Mathematics (BSM) is an academic program held in Budapest, Hungary for American and Canadian undergraduates. All courses are taught in English. Semesters start in the first week of September and February. An optional intensive language course is offered about two weeks before regular classes begin. Early applications are encouraged, as qualified applicants will be accepted to participate in the program on a rolling basis once their applications are complete. The deadline to apply for the fall 2010 semester is APRIL 30, 2010. See the website for information on the courses, credits, costs, Budapest, and application requirements.
- SIAM UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH ONLINE - CALL FOR PAPERS. SIAM Undergraduate Research Online (SIURO) is a web-based publication devoted to undergraduate research in applied and computational mathematics. Topics include analysis, discrete mathematics, statistics, operations research, optimization, dynamical systems, modeling, and computation. Papers written by undergraduate students (or teams of students) are being accepted on an ongoing basis and will be posted online as they are accepted. The SIURO web site lists the editorial board and has instructions for authors, review policies, etc.
s K-6) teachers now for the 2010 awards. Nominations for secondary school teachers (grades 7-12) will be accepted next year.
- STIPENDS FOR STUDY AND TRAVEL. The September 2008 issue of Notices of the AMS includes opportunities for graduate
support, postdoctoral support, travel and study abroad, and study
in the U.S. for foreign nationals. There are various deadlines throughout this academic year.
- ATTENTION STUDENTS!
If you are a member of the AMS, MAA, SIAM, AMATYC, AWM or CMS/SMC, please keep your contact information current on the online Combined Membership List. The directory is a
great networking tool, so be sure your mathematical colleagues all
over the U.S. and Canada can find you!
- NSF-AWM TRAVEL GRANTS. This program enables women to attend research conferences in
their fields, thereby providing a valuable opportunity to advance their
research activities and their visibility in the research community. The
grants provide full or partial support for travel and subsistence for a
meeting or conference in the applicant's field of specialization. A
maximum of US$1,500 for domestic travel and US$2,000 for foreign travel will be
available. Women must hold a doctorate (or equivalent experience) and
have a work address in the US (or US home address, in case of unemployed
mathematicians). There are three award periods per year, with
applications due OCTOBER 1, FEBRUARY 1, and MAY 1.
