Graduate Research Opportunities for Women: a conference aimed at female-identified undergraduate students who may be interested in pursuing a graduate degree in mathematics. Held at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor from October 26-28, 2018.
Applications open June 1, 2018, and close November 1, 2018 (after the conference).
Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics: an annual event typically held in February, with applications due in October. Participation is limited to undergraduates only. Students may participate once without presenting a poster or a talk–to attend again, they must be presenting. “Students are encouraged to seek support from their home institutions to subsidize expenses. The conference also has a limited number of travel awards.” Their website has a link to subscribe to their mailing list for announcements about upcoming conference dates and registration deadlines.
Every year in October.
The EDGE program is a summer program for women who are in between undergraduate and graduate study. “The EDGE Program is administered by Morehouse and Pomona Colleges with the goal of strengthening the ability of women students to successfully complete PhD programs in the mathematical sciences and place more women in visible leadership roles in the mathematics community. Along with the summer session, EDGE supports an annual conference, travel for research collaborations, travel to present research and other open-ended mentoring activities.” Participants receive a $3000 stipend plus travel, room and board.
Every year in early March.
The IAS Women and Math program is “an intensive 11-day mentoring program for undergraduate and graduate women in mathematics. The program brings together research mathematicians with undergraduate and graduate students on the campus of the Institute for Advanced Study and is designed to address issues of gender imbalance in mathematics. Activities include lectures and seminars on a focused mathematical topic, mentoring, discussions on peer relations, an introduction to career opportunities and a women in sciences seminar.”
Every year on February 20.
The Carleton College Summer Mathematics Program for Women is open to first- and second-year undergraduate women.
This program did not run in 2016. We will have to check to see when it will resume.
The George Washington University Summer Program for Women in Mathematics: “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.”
This program did not run in 2016 either, due to lack of funding. Stay tuned.
Wheaton College holds an annual Career Mentoring Workshop. This is a 3-day workshop for women entering their final year in graduate school in mathematics.
This year's deadline is April 1 2016. The workshop will be held on June 6-8, 2016, at Wheaton College in Norton, MA.
