Building the Next Generation of Women Leaders in Mathematics

The EDGE Program, funded primarily by the National Science Foundation, is designed to strengthen the ability of women and minority students to successfully complete graduate programs in the mathematical sciences.

Increased diversity in the mathematics community will ultimately strengthen U.S. competitiveness in mathematics and science and allow people from all backgrounds and cultures to thrive, advance, and contribute to the profession.
