The Department of Mathematics at Pomona College will offer an 6-week virtual program to conduct research in mathematics history. The program, entitled PRiME (Pomona Research in Mathematics Experience), will run from June 15 through July 29, 2020. The program is being sponsored by the National Science Foundation (DMS-1560394).

The program is directed by Edray Goins (Pomona College). During the six week program, students will work together on research projects focusing on African American mathematicians.

Students will:

- Learn about African Americans in the mathematical sciences by writing biographies,
- Assist with updating the "Mathematicians of the African Diaspora" by adding to the database of African American mathematicians, and
- Participate in discussions involving the experiences of African Americans in the mathematical sciences.

During the summer, each of the undergraduate participants will:

In order to successfully complete this project, participants will:

Participants in the PRiME program will receive a stipend of $2,000 for the 6-week program. Since this will be a virtual program, there will not be funds allocated for housing or travel.

Students must be undergraduates in good standing, although preference will be given to applicants who will begin either their junior or senior year in the Fall of 2020. National Science Foundation (NSF) funding also requires that participants must be either US Citizens or Permanent Residents.

**Applications for PRiME 2020 are closed.**

An application will consist of a short e-mail which should include:

- A paragraph stating why you would like to participate in this program, and
- The names and emails of two faculty who can be contacted as references.

Applications for the PRiME program should be emailed directly to Edray Goins at edray.goins@pomona.edu.
