REGISTRATION: Diversity in Mathematics: Undergraduate Summer School

  • Start Date: 08/07/2018
  • End Date: 08/17/2018

University of British Columbia


Undergraduate Summer School :


The summer school is open to female-identified undergraduate students studying mathematics or a related discipline such as computer science, physics and statistics at a university in Canada or in the Pacific Northwest of theUnited States, with at least one year of studies remaining in their program. Priority will be given to second and third-year students. Canadians and permanent residents studying outside Canada are also eligible to apply. Each participant will receive on-campus room and board and an allowance for travel expenses within Canada.


Please note that the purpose of the program is to introduce the undergraduate participants to a wide variety of professions and careers, in academia and in industry, where advanced mathematics is used every day with spectacular success. It is NOT a purely research-oriented or purely industry-oriented summer school, rather a sampler of different flavours of mathematics-based careers.


A new component of the program will facilitate effective engagement and interaction with high school students who are good at math, who may not have had enough opportunities to learn about the impact of advanced mathematics and who can thrive under the mentorship of bright and strong undergraduate women in STEM.


Please use the above information to assess your interest and fit for the program. Address these items adequately in your personal statement.
