NOTE: Applicants DO NOT have to have been accepted to a graduate program at the time of their EDGE application.

Applicants to the program should be women who:
1) have applied to graduate programs in the Mathematical Sciences (and have been accepted to a program before June), or
2) have completed their first year of graduate school in the mathematical sciences.

Women from minority groups are especially encouraged to apply. Final acceptance to the program is contingent upon acceptance to a graduate program in the mathematical sciences. Unfortunately, at this time we are only able to fund US citizens and permanent residents.

EDGE is …

strengthening the ability of women students to successfully complete graduate programs in the mathematical sciences
