**Summer
Programs:**

Carleton
College and St Olaf College have a Summer Mathematics Program for Women primarily for students
following their **freshman or sophomore years**.

The Summer Undergraduate
Mathematical Science Research Institute (SUMSRI) is a program conducted
under the guidance of Miami University's Department of Mathematics and
Statistics. They "seek talented **undergraduate students** in the
mathematical sciences who are interested in pursuing advanced degrees. Because
of the shortage of minorities and women mathematical scientists, we are
especially interested in, but not limited to, **African Americans and other
underrepresented minorities and women**."

**Undergraduate
Conferences:**

University
of Nebraska- Lincoln runs an annual Nebraska Conference
for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics in February. This conference gives
outstanding **undergraduate women** the opportunity to discuss their own
research and to meet other women who share their interest in the mathematical
sciences.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Terre Haute, Indiana runs
an annual Conference on Undergraduate Mathematics to spotlight
and celebrate the accomplishments and work of **undergraduate mathematicians**.

**Special
Graduate and Undergraduate Programs:**

Penn State
University has a semester-long MASS program which provides a comprehensive mathematical
environment for a group of talented **undergraduate
students** selected from U.S. colleges and universities. The program combines
advanced learning with research initiation.
