Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior

Our program has an emphasis on theory centered projects, but there are also applied mathematics projects. We offer the opportunity to work mostly one-on-one with our world-class group of mathematics faculty mentors.

Math immersion over the summer- Our Research Experience for Undergraduates program is ideal if you want the opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor on a math research project. The experience emphasizes close relationships with faculty advisors in small groups of 1-3 students.

Throughout the eight weeks of this summer program, you meet privately with your faculty advisors several times per week. The first few weeks are dedicated to helping you understand the details of your particular project. During the middle weeks, you work full-time on the project. The last two weeks are spent preparing both a written and oral report communicating your results. All along the way, the faculty mentor provides assistance and encouragement.

One of the most important aspects of the REU program is student-to-student interaction. For many participants, this may be the first opportunity to get to know others with comparable mathematical interest and ability. All students live together a single dormitory on campus, and are encouraged to participate in several organized social events. Each group usually develops its own unique character, often organizing some of its own activities.

Past project areas have included Geometry (differential, coarse, Euclidean), dynamical systems (ODE, complex analytic, billiards), topology, logic, analysis, combinatorics, group theory, Teichmuller theory, homotopy type theory, quantum physics, and mathematical biology.

In addition, through our NSF sponsorship we are able to offer a $4,000 stipend, free housing in a dormitory with a meal allowance, and a travel allowance to defray the costs of travel to Bloomington.
