Math Alliance Predoctoral Scholars are math or stat sciences students, either undergraduates or students enrolled in a terminal Masters program, who come from ethnic groups, families and/or regions that have had little prior experience with doctoral study in the mathematical or statistical sciences.
Scholars are selected by our Math Alliance Mentors using the following priorities:
- The student is a US citizen or permanent resident who comes from an ethnic group that is underrepresented in the mathematical or statistical sciences. Traditionally, these are students who are African American, Latina/o – Hispanic, American Indian – Native American, Alaskan Native or Pacific Islander. Please note that although participation in the Math Alliance is generally limited to US citizens or permanent residents, exceptions may be made in the case of DACA students or certain other categories of undocumented students. Please contact David Goldberg or Phil Kutzko to discuss individual cases.
- The student is not a minority student but is a US citizen or permanent resident and meets both of the following:
a) comes from an ethnic group, family and/or region that has had little prior experience with doctoral study in the mathematical or statistical sciences and,
b) would be unlikely to pursue graduate study in a mathematical or statistical science without benefiting from Math Alliance programs.
