Mathematics Programs for Women, Minorities, and Other Under-Represented Groups
Programs for Women in Mathematics
- The Carleton College Summer Mathematics Program for Women
The Carleton College Summer Mathematics Program for Women is an NSF-funded program to encourage and support women in their study of mathematics.
The goals of the program include: (1) Introducing students to new areas of mathematics; (2)
Honing students' mathematical reasoning, proof writing, problem solving, and presentation skills; (3)
Building self-confidence, encouraging enthusiasm for mathematics, and increasing awareness of
opportunities for continued study in the mathematical sciences; (4)
Connecting students into a supportive network of other female college math majors,
graduates and professionals to support them through their graduate studies in mathematics.
- Women and Mathematics
Program at the Princeton Institute for Advanced Study
Since 1994 with the support of the National Science Foundation, the
Institute, together with Princeton University, has hosted an intensive
11-day mentoring program for undergraduate and graduate women in
mathematics. The program brings together research mathematicians with
undergraduate and graduate students on the campus of the Institute for
Advanced Study and is designed to address issues of gender imbalance in
mathematics. The program includes lectures and seminars on a focused
mathematical topic, mentoring, discussions on peer relations, an
introduction to career opportunities and a women in sciences seminar.
Here you can find Application Guidelines for the program.
- Enhancing Diversity in Graduate
Education (EDGE)
The EDGE Program was launched in 1998 by Bryn Mawr and Spelman Colleges, with the goal of
strengthening the ability of women students to successfully complete graduate programs in
the mathematical sciences, with particular inclusion of women from under-represented groups.
- The George Washington
University Summer Program for Women
in Mathematics
This program is a 5-week intensive program for
mathematically-talented undergraduate women who are completing their
junior year and may be contemplating graduate study in the mathematical
sciences.
- The Nebraska Conference for
Undergraduate Women in Mathematics
This program is open to outstanding undergraduate women mathematicians
at all stages of their careers. Students will have the opportunity to meet
other women who share their interest in the mathematical sciences, and
those who have already done research will be given an opportunity to
present their results. Conference participants will also have a chance to
learn about life in graduate school from the perspective of current women
graduate students representing math departments from across the country.
