Description:
The SMALL Undergraduate Research Project is a nine-week summer program in which undergraduates investigate open research problems in mathematics. The largest program of its kind in the country, SMALL is supported in part by a National Science Foundation grant for Research Experiences for Undergraduates and by the Science Center of Williams College. Around 500 students have participated in the project since its inception in 1988.

Students work in small groups directed by individual faculty members. Most participants publish papers and present talks at research conferences based on work done in SMALL. Some have gone on to complete PhD's in Mathematics. During off hours, students enjoy the many attractions of summer in the Berkshires: hiking, biking, plays, concerts, etc. Weekly lunches, teas, and casual sporting events bring SMALL students together with faculty and other students spending the summer doing research at Williams College.
