The purpose of the EDGE Program is to increase the number of women and minority students who successfully complete graduate programs in the mathematical sciences.
Achieving EDGE Goals
Intensive Summer Program
The Summer program includes two four-week core courses; a mini-course on a selected area of mathematical research; and problem sessions aimed at preparing participants for graduate qualifying exams.
An Evolving, Multi-pronged Approach to Mentoring
Each year during the summer session we hold a two-day conference at the host institution. The conference includes activities designed to mentor graduate students and postdocs and is a critical component to the comprehensive mentoring offered by the EDGE Program. Both the current and previous year’s summer session participants attend the conference along with some recent PhD recipients in the EDGE Program.
