MRCs offer a unique opportunity to develop and sustain long-lasting collaborative cohorts.

The program includes: a one-week summer conference with on-site mentors for each research topic, Special Sessions at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, discussion networks by research topic, and a longitudinal study of early career mathematicians. The National Science Foundation provides important grant support for MRCs.

While grants may cover the fundamentals, your gift helps cover costs of housing and transportation, especially for international participants, whose travel costs often exceed those of their peers.
