*Call for Applications: Modern Math Workshop*
As part of the Mathematical Sciences Collaborative Diversity
Initiatives, nine mathematics institutes are pleased to host their
annual pre-conference event, the 2015 Modern Math Workshop (MMW)
<http://www.msri.org/workshops/789>, on Oct. 28-29, 2015, in Washington,
DC. The Workshop immediately precedes the 2015 Society for Advancement
of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS <http://sacnas.org>)
annual meeting, Oct. 29-31. The Modern Math Workshop is intended to
encourage minority undergraduates to pursue careers in the mathematical
sciences and to assist undergraduates, graduate students and recent
PhD’s in building their research networks. The Modern Math Workship
begins with registration at noon on Wednesday, October 28 and ends at
noon on Thursday, October 29.
The Modern Math Workshop presents 2 mini-courses for undergraduates and
talks related to the research programs at the math institutes that would
be of interest to graduate students and early career researchers.
Most participants attending this workshop are supported by SACNAS as
part of the SACNAS National Conference. To apply for funding from
SACNAS, please go to www.tinyurl.com/SACNAS-travel-scholarships. If you
receive a notice from SACNAS that you are expected to attend the Modern
Math Workshop (MMW), you will also be receiving a notice from us with a
link for registration for MMW.
There is funding available directly from MMW to fund attendance at MMW
and SACNAS. Priority for these funds will be given to minority graduate
students and early career researchers. Applications will be via
The application process will start May 15, 2015 and end July 31, 2015.
