*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.
