Summer Program for Women in Mathematics
2013 to August 3, 2013
The George Washington University Summer
Program for Women in Mathematics (SPWM) is a five-week intensive program for mathematically-
talented undergraduate women who are completing their junior year and may be
contemplating graduate study in the mathematical sciences. Goals of this
program are to communicate an enthusiasm for mathematics, to develop research
skills, to cultivate mathematical self-confidence and independence, and to
promote success in graduate school.
- ELIGIBILITY. Applicants must
citizen or permanent resident undergraduate women at a US
university or college, who are completing their junior year, or equivalent,
and have mathematical experience beyond the typical first courses in
calculus and linear algebra.
- AWARD. Sixteen women
will be selected. Each will receive a travel allowance, campus room and
board, and a stipend of $1,750.
- PROGRAM. SPWM will offer
a number of seminars led by active research mathematicians, with the
assistance of graduate students. The seminars will be organized to enable
the students to obtain a deep understanding of basic concepts in several
areas of mathematics, to learn how to do independent work, and to gain
experience in expressing mathematical ideas orally and in writing. No
course credits or grades will be given. There will be panel
discussions on graduate schools, career opportunities, and the job market.
Weekly field trips will be organized to facilities of mathematical
interest around the Washington area.
dates for SPWM 2013 will be: June 29- August 3, 2013.
