Columbia Summer Undergraduate Research Experiences in Mathematical Modeling

Program information and application instructions

Columbia Summer Undergraduate Research Experiences in Mathematical Modeling (CSUREMM) is a full-time eighth-week program for collaborative undergraduate student summer research experiences in mathematical modeling.

The purpose of the summer program is two-fold: to introduce the participants to some of the advanced topics in mathematical modeling and simulation encountered in modern interdisciplinary research; and to allow the participants to propose and develop collaborative interdisciplinary research projects under the joint mentorship of Columbia graduate students and faculty.

For additional details, please see CSUREMM 2021 Program.

Eligibility: The program is open to any continuing Barnard/Columbia undergraduate student, independent of U.S. residency. We particularly encourage women and historically underrepresented minorities to apply.

Program dates: CSUREMM 2021 is offered fully online and runs from June 21 to August 13.  Students are expected to be available to participate live in all the program activities. Final presentations by participants will be scheduled on the last day of the program.

Stipend: Participants will receive $3200 stipend and may not accept other employment or enroll in classes during the program. The program is offered fully online, but students already in residence may apply for housing support for the duration of the program (Summer Interim period and Summer B term).

Application deadline: Thursday, April 15, before 5:00 PM (EST).

Collection of Self-Identification Data: The Department of Mathematics and the Department of Statistics at Columbia University are acting on the evidence that diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) strengthen the scientific communities and the quality, social relevance, and impact of research.

Self-identification data provides information on the diversity of the student population applying for and receiving summer research funds. This data is important for monitoring the fairness of our summer program and informing future measures to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion among all those involved in the research enterprise. Completing the new self-identification form is mandatory for applicants but for each category there is an option “I prefer not to answer”.

Contact: For more information, contact George Dragomir or Ivan Corwin.

CSUREMM 2021 is jointly funded by the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Statistics, and by the NSF through DMS:1937254 – Research Training in Applied Mathematics at Columbia University.
