2019 Diversity in Mathematics: Undergraduate Summer School
Applications are now open for "Diversity in Math", a two-week outreach summer program devoted to enhancing the presence of under-represented groups in STEM fields.
The program is open to female-identified undergraduate students studying mathematics or a related discipline such as computer science, physics and statistics. The purpose of this program is to introduce the undergraduate participants to a wide variety of professions and careers, within and outside academia.
Mentorship is an important component of the program. Undergraduate participants are expected to interact with senior mathematicians in academia and industry, and also act as mentors for high school students around the lower mainland who are considering a STEM-based career.
Below is some basic information about the program:
Location: UBC & SFU
Dates: July 22nd - August 2nd, 2019
