Faculty receive renewed funding for undergraduate research program
Three faculty in the Missouri State University department of mathematics received a renewed grant of $99,367 from the National Science Foundation for their project “Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Mathematics at Missouri State University.”
The project team consists of:
- Dr. Les Reid, professor
- Dr. Jorge Rebaza-Vasquez, professor
- Dr. Xingping Sun, professor and College of Natural and Applied Sciences associate dean
The program will provide summer research opportunities to eligible junior or senior mathematics students in the fields of algebra, analysis, combinatorics, differential equations and numerical analysis. Students will learn how to communicate the results of their research and participate in the peer review process.
Research opportunities last eight weeks and participating students receive a $3,700 stipend, as well as on-campus housing, travel and meal allowances.
