## CURE: Collaborative Undergraduate Research Experience |

## Administrative Information
Application Deadline: June 1, 2018 |
## Program DescriptionCURE is an intense 8-week summer research program primarily aimed at mathematics majors. The program involves 4-5 undergraduate students, a faculty research advisor (Dr. Ian Charlesworth in 2018), one graduate student research mentor, along with the program advisor Prof. Todd Kemp. The goals of the program are to: - explore a topic in research-level mathematics,
- promote collaborative work in the next generation of mathematicians,
- encourage graduate study in mathematics, and
- promote diversity in mathematics.
Participants are paid a stipend of $4,000 USD, in two monthly installments. They are expected to be working (together as a group)
with their mentors on weekdays during the program.
## 2018 Project DescriptionThe topic of this year's CURE project is ## Application ProcedureCURE is open to all current full-time UCSD students. Interested students should have taken Math 140AB (real analysis). Other courses that could be useful are Math 180A (probability theory),
Math 154 or Math 184 (combinatorics), and Math 102 (linear algebra). Some programming experience is also a great benefit. There is no U.S. citizenship/residency requirement,
but you must have legal status to live and work in the U.S. through at least September 1, 2018.
The deadline for application to the 2017 program is Submit your application using this Application Form. You will need to submit: - A current cv.
- An up-to-date academic transcript (official not necessary; a pdf download from the registrar is fine).
- A list of all upper-division mathematics courses you have taken, in addition to any courses or training in related computational fields (e.g. computer science and computer engineering).
- A one page sample of mathematical writing. This can be on a topic of mathematics research you have worked on in the past, or it can be an exposition of a favorite theorem you've learned in (or out of) your course work. The goal is to demonstrate your enthusiasm for, and ability to communicate, rigorous mathematical ideas.
These materials will be evaluated immediately following the application deadline, and successful applicants will be notified by June 8, 2018. |
