Undergraduate Research

The MAA supports and encourages research by undergraduate students at a variety of levels.

Conducting research in the mathematical sciences

If you're interested in conducting mathematical research, consider applying for an REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) program. We also maintain a list of semester and summer programs for mathematics students, many of which have research components. 

Presenting your research

Many mathematics meetings and conferences have opportunities for students to participate or present.

  • The MathFest Poster Session (in early August)
  • The Joint Mathematics Meetings Undergraduate Student Poster Session (in January)
  • The Regional Undergraduate Mathematics Conferences (in the Fall and Spring)
