Summer Program for Women in Mathematics
Other resources

Summer Programs:

Carleton College and St Olaf College have a Summer Mathematics Program for Women primarily for students following their freshman or sophomore years.

The Summer Undergraduate Mathematical Science Research Institute (SUMSRI) is a program conducted under the guidance of Miami University's Department of Mathematics and Statistics. They "seek talented undergraduate students in the mathematical sciences who are interested in pursuing advanced degrees. Because of the shortage of minorities and women mathematical scientists, we are especially interested in, but not limited to, African Americans and other underrepresented minorities and women."

Undergraduate Conferences:

University of Nebraska- Lincoln runs an annual Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics in February. This conference gives outstanding undergraduate women the opportunity to discuss their own research and to meet other women who share their interest in the mathematical sciences.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Terre Haute, Indiana runs an annual Conference on Undergraduate Mathematics  to spotlight and celebrate the accomplishments and work of undergraduate mathematicians.

Special Graduate and Undergraduate Programs:

Penn State University has a semester-long MASS program which provides a comprehensive mathematical environment for a group of  talented undergraduate students selected from U.S. colleges and universities. The program combines advanced learning with research initiation.
