**Summer Undergraduate
Mathematical Science Research Institute**

The **Summer Undergraduate Mathematical Science
Research Institute** (**SUMSRI**) seeks talented undergraduate
African American students in the mathematical sciences who are
interested in pursuing advanced degrees. Its goals include providing
students with a research environment and improving their research
abilities. **SUMSRI will pay for the students' travel, room,
board, books, and supplies.** Each student will also be given
a **$2200 stipend**. It is conducted by Miami University of
Ohio and is funded in part by the National Security Agency.

**NSF low income student Scholarships**

NSF has 8,000 one-year scholarships of up to $2,500 each to low income students who pursue degrees in computer science, engineering or mathematics. See http://www.nsf.gov/od/lpa/news/press/99/pr9919.htm

The goal of the Meyerhoff Program is to increase the number of minorities, particularly African-Americans, who earn Ph.D.s in the sciences, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. Upon graduation, 95 percent of Meyerhoff Scholars immediately go on to professional and graduate schools. The program was founded by an African American mathematician, Freeman Hrabowski, currently president of UMBC with a grant from The Robert and Jane Meyerhoff Foundation. The first group of Meyerhoff Scholars were 19 young African-American men who enrolled in the fall of 1989. A year later the program was expanded to include African-American women and students from across the country. Today there are ~180 Meyerhoff enrolled at UMBC.
