Program Environment


Winthrop University REU: Bridging Applied and Theoretical Mathematics is a nine week research experience in mathematical biology. Participants will begin research with the full-time support of a faculty research mentor, and transition to graduate style mathematics research. The program includes a professional development seminar, a mathematical colloquium, and opportunities to engage with multi-disciplinary groups of students participating in research experiences on campus. Participants will receive a $4,500 stipend, on campus housing and a modest food allotment. Support is available for travel to and from Winthrop and to attend the Joint Mathematics Meetings to present research.

Eligibility Requirements

  1. U.S. Citizen or permanent resident who will be enrolled in an undergraduate program during the Fall of 2014.
  2. Must be
    1. currently enrolled at an undergraduate institution whose highest mathematics degree is at the Associate's or Bachelor's level
    2. enrolled at an institution with a graduate mathematics program but special circumstances limit your access to undergraduate research opportunities at your home institution.


Applications are available on the MathPrograms website and must be received no later than February 28th. We welcome applications from all hard working mathematicians and are especially excited about helping prepare students from groups underrepresented in mathematics graduate programs for a career in mathematics.

Support for this program is pending final approval from the National Science Foundation.
