Diversity in Math Application Calls
March 3, 2019
Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) is hosting “Diversity in Math“, a two-week outreach summer program devoted to enhancing the presence of under-represented groups in STEM fields.
One arm of the program is open to female-identified undergraduate students studying mathematics or a related discipline such as computer science, physics and statistics. The purpose of this program is to introduce the undergraduate participants to a wide variety of mathematics-based professions and careers, within and outside academia. Travel expenses, accommodation and per diem will be provided for all participants.
Mentorship is an important component of the program. Undergraduate participants are expected to interact with senior mathematicians in academia and industry, and also act as mentors for high school students around the lower mainland who are considering a STEM-based career.
Below is some basic information about the program:
- Location: UBC & SFU
- Dates: July 22nd – August 2nd, 2019
The application process is ongoing. The application deadline has been extended to April 15, 2019.
