Summer Undergraduate Applied Mathematics Institute May 27 - July 22, 2014

Carnegie Mellon University offers a summer program for twelve undergraduates considering research careers in mathematical sciences. Students who have finished their sophomore or junior years and who have strong academic records will be given preference. Among applicants who are otherwise comparable, admission to the program will be designed to create an ethnically diverse group of participants. Applications from women and minorities are especially encouraged.

  • U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are selected into the program, will receive a stipend of $\$3,150$, housing in the university dormitories, and allowances for food and travel.
  • Non U.S. citizens or non residents who are selected into the program, will be expected to pay a registration fee of $\$500$. In addition, they are responsible for their own housing, travel and food. University housing will be available for approximately $\$2,000$ for the duration of the Institute.

They will spend seven weeks in Pittsburgh participating in a course in analysis, a computer laboratory, and working on projects under the direction of research faculty. Program participants will receive Carnegie Mellon credit. Faculty who are actively engaged in applied mathematics research and who have a particular interest in undergraduate education will provide the instruction.

In order to be eligible, students must be continuing students in an undergraduate degree program; transcripts must be provided. The application deadline for Summer 2014 is March 1, 2014.
