To apply, first find an adviser. Note that your adviser does not have to be in the department, provided your project involves significant mathematical content. After you have a faculty member willing to supervise a project, work with him or her to prepare a one to two page project proposal. The proposal should cover your plan of study, whether it is research or guided reading. The deadline is typically in April, and responses come out late in the month. If you need to hear back earlier—which will often be the case, since the summer housing deadline is earlier than the program’s response date—talk to the program coordinators: Professors Manjul Bhargava, Christopher Skinner, and Robert Gunning.
