Conference for People Thinking of Grad School

Math_Header_2009_goldIf you’re thinking about grad school in math or statistics, then you should check this out.  The National Alliance for Doctoral Studies in the Mathematical Sciences and American Statistical Association are holding a joint conference for undergraduates interested in attending graduate school in math, statistics, and related fields.

It’s specifically targeted at people who belong to groups which are under-represented in mathematics.  They are able to provide travel funds and if this sounds interesting, you should definitely check it out!

As their website says:

These conferences introduce potential graduate students from groups which are underrepresented in the mathematical sciences to graduate programs in mathematics and statistics at Alliance schools as well as professional opportunities in these fields. Representatives of other quantitative fields such as engineering will be on hand to discuss opportunities in these areas.
