In the summer of 2011 the Mathematics Department of the Pennsylvania State University will host a Research Experiences for Undergraduates site. Participants will be selected from qualified applicants. We encourage students to apply for both, Summer REU and our MASS program which runs in the Fall semester of each year. Participation in REU followed by MASS provides an opportunity for completing a more substantial long-term research project.

Application deadline is February 28, 2011.

The program will run from June 29 to August 12, 2011. It will combine learning with research and include:

Only US citizens and permanent residents are eligible for funding. Applications from international students are accepted, but if admitted, they will have to cover their own expenses.

Each eligible REU 2011 participant will receive a stipend of $2,500, reimbursement for room and board, and travel reimbursement up to $500.

International applicants:

(1) If English is not your native language please ask your recommenders to comment on your English proficiency in their letters;

(2) If admitted to the program, you will need to provide a proof of health insurance that meets the Exchange Visitor regulations or proof of personal funds sufficient to purchase such an insurance, and a proof of additional personal funds of $550 for miscellaneous expenses;
