• NSF (National Science Foundation) iMASS (Integrated Math and Science Scholars) Program
    This program is intended to develop a community of mathematics and science scholars, provide them with meaningful research and/or internship opportunities, and give them the financial support necessary for them to succeed. We seek to build research teams that include both mathematics and science majors. Mathematics scholars will be able to apply their knowledge to meaningful real-world scientific research, and science scholars will have the benefit of added mathematical rigor in support of their conclusions.

    Program Participant Requirements

    Program participants must:

    1. be a rising sophomore
    2. be a science or math major
