Going to graduate school? Think “EDGE” (Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education)

The goal of the EDGE program is to strengthen the ability of women students to successfully complete PhD programs in the mathematical sciences, with particular inclusion of women from underrepresented groups.  The 2016 EDGE Summer Session will be held June 6 – July 2 at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN. The summer session provides two core workshops in analysis and algebra/linear algebra, as well as a shorter workshop in a vital area of mathematical research.  EDGE also promotes networking and community through collaborative problem solving and by including facilitators from institutions across the country, speakers from academia and industry, and peer mentors.  A follow-up mentoring program and support network is established with each participants’ graduate program.

Applicants to the program should be women who are either graduating seniors who have applied to PhD programs in the mathematical sciences or recent recipients of undergraduate degrees who are now entering Ph.D. programs. All applicants should have completed standard undergraduate courses in analysis and abstract algebra; final acceptance into the program is contingent upon acceptance to a PhD program in the mathematical sciences.  Participants are provided travel, room and board, and a stipend.  For application materials and                         additional details, visit http://www.edgeforwomen.org/

The deadline for applications is February 29, 2016.
