We are excited to announce an online opportunity for undergraduates taking place the afternoon of Saturday, September 26.
STRIVE for MORE 2020: Success Through Rewarding and Inclusive Virtual Experience for Mathematics – Opportunities in Research and Education
STRIVE for MORE is a new, virtual workshop to engage undergraduate students in highly relevant mathematics tied to applications that address societal needs and encourage them to consider graduate studies and careers in mathematics. Participants will learn about cutting edge research which addresses societal needs from a leading mathematician, engage in discussions with graduate students, participate in panel discussions on research, summer opportunities and pathways to mathematical careers. We welcome applications from students who are currently undergraduates majoring in mathematics or a closely related discipline or those students who are considering such a major. First-generation college students and students from underrepresented groups in mathematics are especially encouraged to apply. STRIVE for MORE is a cooperative effort between Clemson University and Virginia Tech, funded by NSF. It follows the successful on-campus event last fall at Virginia Tech, and we hope to host an in-person MORE workshop in 2021. More information and applications are available at intranet.math.vt.edu/MORE2020.
