NEWSLETTER 33 (4) - last update 11/24/2002
SUMSRI at Miami of Ohio
The Summer Undergraduate Mathematical Science Research Institute (SUMSRI) is a program conducted under the guidance of Miami University's Department of Mathematics and Statistics. We 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.
SUMSRI will run from June 1 to July 18, 2003, on Miami University's campus in Oxford, Ohio. During these seven weeks, students will participate in problem seminars in mathematics, statistics, or computer science. The program will also include a technical writing seminar, a GRE preparation workshop, two short courses on algebra and real analysis, and colloquium talks given by well know mathematical scientists. There will also be panel discussions to present information on graduate school and career opportunities in the mathematical sciences. SUMSRI will pay for the students travel, room, board, and supplies. Each student will also be given a $2,500 stipend. Funds may also be available for travel and support to some selected national meetings. For more details see: http://www.units.muohio.edu/sumsri/
THE EDGE PROGRAM at Pamona College
The EDGE Program is designed to strengthen the ability of women and minority students to successfully complete graduate programs in the mathematical sciences. In 2003, the program will be held at Pomona College in Claremont California, June 2-23. Professors Sylvia Bozeman and Rhonda Hughes will continue to serve as co-directors of the national EDGE program. The summer program consists of core courses in analysis and algebra/linear algebra, as well as minicourses, guest lectures and panel discussions.
Applicants to the program should be women who are
(i) graduating seniors who have applied to
graduate programs in the mathematical sciences,
(ii) recent recipients of undergraduate degrees who are now entering graduate programs, or
(iii) first-year graduate students.
Participants will receive a stipend of $2000 plus room and board. Please feel free to download an application now. If you have any questions, check the FAQ page or contact us.

UNIVERSITY'S ARNOLD L. MITCHEM
The Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science at Marquette University invites applications for the Arnold L Mitchem Dissertation Fellowship Program. Mitchem Fellowships seek to help increase the presence of currently underrepresented racial and cultural groups in the U.S. professoriate by supporting advanced doctoral candidates during completion of the dissertation. The fellowships provide one year of support for doctoral candidates well into the writing stage of their dissertation work who are U.S. citizens currently enrolled in U.S. universities. Mathematics and mathematics education, statistics, and computer science are among the areas supported. For information, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit http://www.marquette.edu/mitchem/
Department of Industrial Engineering
Graduate Funding Available
The Texas A&M University industrial engineering graduate program ranks among the top programs in the nation. Nationally recognized faculty provide expertise across a broad range of industrial engineering research areas including manufacturing/production systems, operations research, and logistics.
M.S., M. Eng., and Ph.D. degrees are offered. Flexible degree plans are designed to meet individual interests and career objectives.
Fellowships and assistantships are available on a competitive basis for qualified students, with preference given to those applying for the doctoral program. Texas A&M welcomes applications from women and underrepresented groups.
