The EDGE Program (Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education) was launched in 1998 by Bryn Mawr and Spelman Colleges, with the goal of strengthening the ability of women students to successfully complete graduate programs in the mathematical sciences, with particular inclusion of women from underrepresented groups.
The next EDGE summer program is expected (contingent upon funding) to be held June 2-27, 2014 at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, CA; Dr. Talithia Williams is the local director. A stipend plus travel, room and board will be awarded to participants. The application deadline for the program is Friday, February 28, 2014. Participants to the program will be announced in early April.
