Sorry, this REU program will not be running for the summer 2013
Research Experience for Undergraduates
Mathematics and Computer Science
May 29 - July 20, 2012
Ursinus College’s REU site in the Mathematical Sciences, A Broad Spectrum of Opportunities, is an exciting program sponsored by the NSF. Undergraduate students spend 8 weeks during the summer devoted exclusively to working in teams on original research in the mathematics or computer science under the close tutelage of a faculty mentor. Participants will have transformative learning experiences on- and off-campus, will work in an environment that fosters interaction, and will network and develop professional relationships with the larger mathematical sciences community. The program goals are to nurture undergraduates’ interest and skills in research, improve their ability to utilize complex methods and analyze complex issues, and provide them with the mathematical sophistication required for successful research careers in the mathematical sciences.
Open to undergraduates nationwide. Eight students will be competitively selected. The students receive a stipend ($3,600), on-campus housing, and expenses for travel and REU activities, including travel to conference throughout the year following the program. Students will also participate in activities and educational events sponsored by the Summer Fellows programs at Ursinus College.
The REU is coordinated by Dr. Yahdi, Chair of the Mathematics & Computer Science Department at Ursinus College. Ursinus is an independent, highly selective, nationally ranked, co-educational, residential liberal arts college located in Collegeville- Pennsylvania, 25 miles northwest of center city Philadelphia. Ursinus is selected as one of only 40 colleges in the book, "Colleges That Change Lives."
