Summer Undergraduate Mathematical Sciences
A seven-week program for minorities and women undergraduates interested in pursuing advanced degrees in mathematics and statistics.
Summer Program for Women in Mathematics
a five-week intensive program for mathematically-talented undergraduate women who are completing their junior year and may be contemplating graduate study in the mathematical sciences.
Summer Mathematics Program for Women
An intensive four-week mathematics program for women finishing their sophomore year.
Summer Undergraduate Applied Mathematics
For those considering research careers in the mathematical sciences; Diversity being sought; application available on-line.
Mathematical and Theoretical Biology
A summer research program designed to encourage undergraduates to pursue advanced degrees in math and sciences and facilitate the access of graduate studies for Chicano, Latino, Native American and other minority students in the sciences.
Mathematics Advanced Study Semesters ( MASS )
Note: This program is held during the fall semester.
Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) at
for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), Los
Three separate programs: Goddard Space Flight Center, Ames Research Center, and Dryden Flight Research Center; online applications available.
NASA Undergraduate Student Research Program at Glenn Research Center.
Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton)
Park City Math Institute
This program brings together women in Mathematics from the undergraduate level to the Ph.D. level to study a different concept in mathematics every year. Support is provided.
Finding Internships and Fellowships
Internships are often seen by employers as entry level positions. It is a way for them to check out your abilities and work habits. For any internship, be sure to find out a few things before agreeing to take the internship. Will you have to find your own housing? Will the internship pay? What will your internship entail? If it's just copying and getting coffee, look further. Remember to apply early. Many internships have November deadlines. Don't forget to ask around. Local companies often have unadvertised internships or can create them.
For internships in math and science:
The National Security
Department of Energy
National Institutes of Health
NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH, has internships for high school through PhD levels of study.
Bureau of Labor Statistics
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute
AMS has a more complete list of internships. (The links on this page may be out of date, but the listing of companies is still good.)
For more general or business related internships:InRoads, Inc. -- helps minority students find internships and corporate mentorships Vault.com
This is a good place to start. This site separates internships from regular jobs. It has several search criteria and corporate profiles.Mathematics Organizations: These organizations can help you network to find jobs, find other people with your research interests and build a mathematics community.
Young Mathematicians Network (YMN)
This is an interesting collection of new mathematicians looking for good career jobs. They meet at the annual joint math meetings. They publish a monthly journal called Concerns of Young Mathematicians that has articles about the job search process, graduate school and first faculty position articles.National Association of Mathematicians (NAM)
Looking for African American mathematicians? This is for you. NAM sponsors an undergraduate MathFest as well as Regional Faculty Conferences on Research and Teaching Excellence. Unfortunately, this site is not updated with information on upcoming events. It is a good starting point though and you can get the information on upcoming conferences by contacting the webmaster.Conference for African Americans Researchers in the Mathematical Sciences CAARMS
This conference is a great way to listen to some of the best African American mathematics researchers in business and academe.Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS)
The mission of SACNAS is to encourage Chicano/Latino and Native American students to pursue graduate education and obtain the advanced degrees necessary for research careers and science teaching professions at all levels.American Indian Science & Engineering Society (AISES)
Nurtures building of community by bridging science and technology with traditional Native values. Through its educational programs, AISES provides opportunities for American Indians and Native Alaskans to pursue studies in science, engineering, business and other academic arenas.American Mathematical Society (AMS)
Offers MathSciNet-a guide to mathematical reviews on the web. Has a good bookstore, job search helps and more. Publishes the Journal of the AMS and Notices .Mathematics Association of America (MAA)
Sponsors SUMMA (Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement), Women and Mathematics Network and other quality professional development programs. Also sponsors Math Horizons Magazine and a bookstore.Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)
Has professional opportunities listing and publishes journals in many specialized areas of mathematics.Association of Women in Mathematics (AWM)
If you are looking for professional women in mathematics and what they are doing, this is your place. Many helps for women pursuing math as a career.Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS)
Provides information about the INstitute For Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS),Society for Mathematical Biology (SMB)
including some of the journals it puts out, conferences, etc.
Provides a forum for discussion of research in biology, mathematical-biology, and mathematics applied to or motivated by biology. Interdisciplinary research such as biophysics, computational biology, and many other similar realms are a growing part of the discussion. Links to the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology.Society of Actuaries (SOA)
If actuarial science is your thing, this is the site. Articles, conferences, books, career advice. It's all here.American Statistical Association (ASA)
For the statistician, this site has it all. Professional development, Center for Statististics Education, meetings and other helpful aid is available here.For more information about math & science organizations, see http://botw.org/top/Science/Math/Organizations/
Excellent articles for guidance as you are looking for a graduate school or your first job. Based on the Black Collegian magazine, it is backed with 30 years of experience.
This site is new but being aggressively networked, so it is growing. Has channels for education and careers. Be sure to look at its networking opportunities to increase your network.
This site has a good career site with links to companies that are hiring, profiles of those companies and others. I hope this site is also growing.
Montage Diversity, Inc
Montage recruits and supports minority teachers for private prep schools (mostly on the east coast). They can also help those they recruit in finding schools that will cover tuition to grad school, or transition into the business world.
