NREUP 2021 Student Showcase

The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) 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. Each year mathematical sciences faculty are invited to apply for a grant to host National Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program at their own campus over the summer. NREUP is structured both to increase undergraduate completion rates and encourage more students to pursue graduate study by exposing them to research experiences after they complete their sophomore year.

This year, students who participated in an NREUP in 2021 were invited to present their project in a virtual poster session. The full program of the event, including project abstracts, can be found here.

In addition to their live presentations, eight student groups chose to produce an additional two-minute video presentation of their project to be shared publicly. We are thrilled to be able to share with you these videos from the following institutions. Please click the institution's name to see their video(s).
