Dear math club advisors,
I just wanted to let you know about our mathematics REU this summer. The PI’s in this grant are native Okies, first generation college students, and one of us is Native American, so we are hoping to get some good students from underrepresented groups (especially American Indian, First Generation College Students, and females), but all US citizens who are undergraduates qualify. I hope you’ll spread the word about our program with the students at OU. The stipend is $4000 (but about $900 of that goes to their housing cost). Here is our link:

The OU McNair Scholars Program is currently accepting applications for first-generation/low-income or underrepresented students who are interested in pursuing graduate school following graduation. McNair offers the opportunity to gain invaluable research experience with the aid of a research stipend ($1400 per semester), while networking with some of the University’s top faculty.
First-generation students are those whose parents have not earned a baccalaureate degree and the low-income guidelines are determined by the number of family members claimed on your 2008 taxes as it relates to adjusted gross (taxable) income – http://www.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ope/trio/incomelevels.html. Students currently underrepresented in graduate education include African Americans, American Indians and Latino(a)s. The academic requirements for the program are a 3.00 GPA or higher and at least 60 credit hours.
For more information about the McNair Scholars Program, please see http://www.ou.edu/special/mcnair/McNair/Home.html or contact Sophia at 325.0591/smorren “at” ou.edu. The deadline is April 2, 2009 so don’t delay!
