Summer Programs

2011 Nebraska IMMERSE

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln
invites applications from students for the 2011 Nebraska IMMERSE
(Intensive Mathematics: A Mentoring, Education and Research Summer
Experience) program.

Nebraska IMMERSE is a six-week summer program to help such students make
the transition from undergraduate to graduate work, funded by a grant from
the National Science Foundation's EMSW21 initiative.  The dates for the
2011 program are June 13-July 22.  The students will receive room, board,
a travel allowance, and a $3,400 stipend.  The main component of IMMERSE
consists of two intensive courses in algebra and analysis at the
advanced-undergraduate/beginning-graduate level.  However, rather than
working through a textbook, the courses are structured around the reading
of research papers.  There are additional components, such as guest speakers.

More information about the program, including the application form, is
available at http://www.math.unl.edu/immerse

The application process is minimal additional work for students who are
already preparing applications for graduate programs.  Any U.S. citizen or
permanent resident who intends to begin graduate study in mathematics in
the U.S. in the fall of 2011 is eligible.  Selection will be based on
transcripts, letters of recommendation, and a personal essay on what the
applicant hopes to gain from participation.

Applications are due by March 15, 2011, with notification in early April.

If you, or your students, have any questions about IMMERSE, feel free
to either call or send an email to the director, Allan Donsig:
