About the Program
Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation and the Department of Defense, 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.
June 2, 2014 - July 25, 2014
All U.S. citizens and permanent residents who will be undergraduates in the summer of 2014 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 the program is also planned.
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! See the Life@Fairfield page for more info.
