"Camp" of Mathematical Queeries

"Camp” of Mathematical Queeries is a five week virtual mathematics enrichment program for LGBTQ+ students entering grades 9-12. The enrichment is designed to tap into the rich funds of knowledge of the LGBTQ+ community and to provide a space in which LGBTQ+ and mathematical identity are affirmed as interconnected entities, central to the teaching and learning of mathematics, in particular.

Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grants

Dolciani Mathematics Enrichment Grants (DMEG) support projects designed to develop mathematical enrichment programs for students who show promise or interest in middle or high school. Proposals are sought from college and university mathematical sciences faculty establishing projects that actively engage middle or high school students beyond the standard curriculum, possibly working in partnership with middle or high school math teachers.

Neff Outreach Fund

John and Mary Neff have provided funding to support projects designed to encourage middle school students to study and persist in their interest in mathematics. The MAA is proud to partner with the Neff Foundation to offer a pilot outreach program that serves middle school students in rural and indigenous communities. Through the MAA outreach initiatives, MAA strives to offer support to faculty and program directors to offer math education projects to middle school, high school and early college students. We are proud to share the projects from our pilot year, where we did targeted research for math education programs in areas that were in need of additional resources. Stay tuned for future funding opportunities from MAA's Neff Outreach Fund.

National Research Experience for Undergraduates Program

National Research Experience for Undergraduates Program (NREUP) supports the participation of mathematics undergraduates from underrepresented groups in focused and challenging research experiences to increase their interest in advanced degrees and careers in mathematics. NREUP aims to reach students at the transition point between lower division and upper division studies, provide mentoring in a challenging summer program that will support students as they continue their undergraduate studies, and encourage students to pursue graduate studies and careers in mathematics.

Tensor SUMMA Grants

Tensor SUMMA (Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement) grants support programs designed to encourage pursuit and enjoyment of mathematics among middle school students, high school students, and/or beginning college students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the field of mathematics.

Tensor Grants for Women & Mathematics

Tensor Women grants support projects designed to encourage college and university women or pre-college girls to study mathematics.
