summer opportunities for current seniors?

Postby exxx » Mon Jan 23, 2012 9:56 pm

Hi everyone,

Obviously we all know about the REU programs for undergrads. But lots of these programs don't admit seniors or recent graduates (i.e. the target community for a site like this).

Does anybody know about any math programs that are open to recent graduates and second-semester seniors? If so post them here!

I know 4 summer school programs that accept math students between their senior year in college and first year in grad school: the PCMI Summer School, the Princeton Program for Women in Math, EDGE and Nebraska Immerse. All four are fully funded, 3 of them pay a stipend for participation.

If you can afford it, I would highly recommend that you do one of the following:
- finish up undergraduate research (if it's expected to lead to a publication)
- start working with a professor at your graduate institution
- study for prelim or qualifying exams (it's so not fun to do algebra problem sets while your fellow first-year grad students are organizing fun reading groups and travel to cool conferences)

@ackirby:

I googled "Texas A&M MTCP" and all I got was "Modulus Temperature Correction Program". Is this what you are talking about?

Thanks.

edit: Nevermind, I went to Texas website and it is "MCTP", not "MTCP"

Thanks for letting me know about it though!
