Grants

Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grants (DMEG) support projects designed to develop mathematical enrichment programs for talented students in middle or high school. Projects funded in the past include summer math camps, mentorship programs, and program opportunities that connect students with a problem from a real industry. The project proposal can be initiated by a teacher within the secondary math education field, but all projects must be partnered with an University. The deadline for proposals is February 12, 2018.

Tensor Grants for Women and Mathematics support projects designed to encourage college and university women or high school and middle school girls to study mathematics. Projects can vary in style, such as holding a conference for counselors to prepare them to encourage women and girls to continue to study mathematics, or bringing high school women onto a college campus for a Math Day and facilitating a substantive follow-up . The project proposal can be initiated by a teacher within the secondary math education field, but all projects must be partnered with an University. The deadline for proposals is February 12, 2018.

Tensor-SUMMA Grants: Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement support programs designed to encourage pursuit and enjoyment of mathematics among middle school students, high school students, and/or beginning college students from groups traditionally under-represented in the field of mathematics. Projects can be math clubs, math circles, or any enrichment piece and should support the advancement of underrepresented groups in mathematics.The project proposal can be initiated by a teacher within the secondary math education field, but all projects must be partnered with an University. The deadline for proposals is February 12, 2018.

National Research Experience for Undergraduates Program (NREUP) supports the participation of mathematics undergraduates from underrepresented groups in focused and challenging research experiences to increase their interest in advanced degrees and careers in mathematics. Proposals should be submitted by university faculty who would like to host a REU at their campus. The deadline for proposals is February 23, 2018.

PIC Math prepares mathematical sciences students for industrial careers by engaging them in research problems that come directly from industry. University faculty hold a semester-long course in the spring that challenges students to solve an industrial problem presented by an industrial partner; faculty receive training the summer before facilitating their course. Proposals should be submitted by university faculty who would like to host a PIC Math course at their campus. The deadline for proposals is March 1, 2018.
