About the Program

Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, the Fairfield REU in Mathematics and Computational Science is a summer program designed to provide undergraduates with the experience of original and active mathematics research. Students in the program will work together in small groups—each group in close consultation with a faculty mentor—on research topics drawn from the faculty mentor's field of expertise.

Program Dates
May 30, 2016 - July 22, 2016

All U.S. citizens and permanent residents who will be undergraduates in the summer of 2016 are eligible. International students at U.S. undergraduate institutions may apply, but are not eligible for funding due to NSF restrictions.

Eligible participants receive a $4,000 stipend and at least $350 in travel funds. Fairfield University provides housing at no cost, and participants will have access to the Fairfield University Library, Recreational Complex, classrooms and computing resources. Travel to mathematics conferences during and after the program is also planned.

Extracurricular Activities
During the program, we will host regular colloquia and seminar talks, as well as social and recreational activities. Fairfield University is an hour by train to Grand Central Station in New York City!
