The MAPS-REU program will not be held in 2020.

The MAPS Research Experience for Undergraduates is an eight-week summer program in which undergraduates investigate open research problems in mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics. MAPS is sponsored by a National Science Foundation grant for Research Experience for Undergraduates and the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Where: Department of Mathematics, University of Maryland, College Park

When: June 13 to August 5, 2016 (8 weeks)

Topics: 5 different projects in  algebraic geometry and combinatorics, applied harmonic analysis, mathematical biology,  numerical PDEs, and scientific computing. 

Eligibility: This program is funded by the National Science Foundation and is open only to US citizens or permanent residents who are current students (current seniors are not eligible) majoring in mathematics at any US college or university.

Stipends: Up to $4000, for the eight weeks, students (except from the Washington, DC- Baltimore area) will be housed in University dorms, and will receive some allowance to cover the cost of their trip to and from College Park.

DEADLINE: February 26, 2016 at 11:59pm. All materials must be received by this date. Late applications will not be accepted. You will receive notification some time in March. We will be adhering to the uniform first reply date for REU programs, so no student will be asked to reply to an acceptance offer before March 8.
