The EDGE Program is sponsored by Morehouse and Pomona Colleges with the goal of strengthening the ability of women students to successfully complete PhD programs in the mathematical sciences and place more women in visible leadership roles in the mathematics community. Along with the summer session, EDGE supports an annual conference, travel for research collaborations, travel to present research and other open-ended mentoring activities.
2014 Summer Session
The most recent EDGE summer program was held June 2-27, 2014 at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, CA; Dr. Talithia Williams was the local director. A $3,000 stipend plus travel, room and board was awarded to participants.
Unwavering Commitment to Diversity
EDGE seeks to create, identify and disseminate programs and strategies that improve the persistence of women and minority graduate students, and contribute to the development of a diverse mathematical community.
Former Summer Session Host Institutions
The first EDGE summer session was at Bryn Mawr College in 1998 and the location alternated between Bryn Mawr and Spelman Colleges until 2003 when it moved to Pomona College. Since then Florida A&M University, Harvey Mudd College, New College of Florida, North Carolina A&T State University, and North Carolina State University have hosted the summer session.
