Program Overview
Our REUT program will allow 9 undergraduates and 3 teachers will work on mathematical research with faculty mentors during a 7-week residential summer program at California State University, Chico.  The program will take place June 19 to August 4, plus a conference presentation the following academic year.

Research Areas
During the summer of 2017 there will be two faculty mentors supervising research teams.  Dr. Kevin McGown will be supervising research team(s) in Number Theory and Dr. Ben Nolting will be supervising research team(s) in Stochastic Processes.  Number theory projects may involve analysis, algebra, or computation, depending upon the interest and background of the students.  Stochastic process projects will involve building models for applications from biology, medicine, engineering, physics, or the social sciences, depending upon the interest and background of the students.

Financial Support
Participants will receive funding for travel and housing, plus a $3500 stipend.

Application Deadline
The application form, unofficial transcripts, and one or two letters of recommendation must be received by the application deadline of March 1, 2017 in order to receive full consideration.  However, we will continue to accept applications until all participant slots have been filled.  All materials should be sent via email to  Candidates must be US citizens or permanent residents who are intending to continue undergraduate studies in the fall.  Women and students from minorities underrepresented in mathematics are particularly encouraged to apply.
