# REU in Mathematics, June 2 - July 25, 2014

The mathematics REU at Fresno State is an exciting eight-week long program with the following goals:

- actively involve students in mathematics research
- improve student writing, presentation, and technical skills through structured workshops
- increase awareness and intention to participate in mathematics graduate degree programs among underrepresented minority students and other participants.

We provide participants with free housing during the REU, a $3500 stipend, a $500 travel allowance to the REU, and a $500 travel allowance to a conference.

We organize a series of guest lectures in order to expose our participants to a wide range of research topics in mathematics.

Students will have opportunities to participate in social activities such as hikes to the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains, pickup soccer, ultimate frisbee, and backyard barbecues.

**This REU program is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (DMS-1156273)**
