Benefits

Alliance Mentoring Team – Predoctoral Alliance Scholars have their Predoctoral Mentor and will also be paired with at least one Alliance Doctoral Mentor (through the mentor match program) and (where possible) an Alliance Doctoral Scholar forming a mentoring team for the student. This team will keep in touch, on an informal basis, (with the student and with each other). Find a mentor here.

Summer REUs – Predoctoral Alliance Scholars are eligible for the Alliance Summer Research Experiences (REUs).

Alliance Field of Dreams Conference РEach Fall, Alliance Scholars, together with their Alliance Mentors, are invited to the Field of Dreams Conference. The Field of Dreams Conference introduces potential graduate students, from groups that are underrepresented in the mathematical sciences, to graduate programs in the mathematical sciences at Alliance schools as well as professional opportunities in these fields.  Representatives of other quantitative fields, such as engineering and business, are on hand to discuss opportunities in these areas as well.  Student participants can spend time with faculty mentors from the Alliance schools, get advice on graduate school applications, and attend seminars on graduate school preparation and expectations as well as career seminars.  Participating faculty enjoy an opportunity to network with colleagues from around the country and with representatives of national Mathematical Sciences Institutes.
