Alliance Predoctoral Scholars are math sciences students, either undergraduates or students enrolled in a terminal Masters program, who are US citizens or permanent residents and who come from ethnic groups, families and/or regions that have had little prior experience with doctoral study in the mathematical sciences.
Scholars are selected by our Alliance Mentors using the following broad criteria:
• The student has the potential to receive a doctoral degree in a mathematical science.
• The student is willing to consider this degree objective.
• Participation in the Alliance will substantially increase the likelihood that the student will enter into and succeed in a doctoral program in the mathematical sciences.
