Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

The Valparaiso Experience in Research by Undergraduate Mathematicians (VERUM) provides an opportunity for rising college sophomores and juniors to engage in their first research experience in mathematics. The VERUM program is looking for exceptional students who want to explore mathematical research to help them decide whether to pursue graduate study in the mathematical sciences. A commitment to graduate study is not a prerequisite for this program, but rather a desired outcome. First-generation college students, minority students, and women are particularly encouraged to apply.

Each participant will be provided with residence hall accommodations on campus, $4,500 stipend, travel reimbursement to Valparaiso University for the summer.

Projects are in enumerative combinatorics, graph theory and networks, mathematical biology, and statistics. A complete list of current and past projects can be found on the program website.
