Research Experience for Undergraduates 2024 (Our 26th summer! Woo-hoo!)

Our 2023 Algorithmic Algebraic Geometry REU group!
Our 2023 Algorithmic Algebraic Geometry REU group!


The Department of Mathematics at Texas A&M will host an eight-week Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) from Early June to Late July (precise dates TBA) in the summer of 2024. We will have programs in Algebraic Methods in Computational Biology, Algorithmic Algebraic Geometry, Number Theory, and Probability and Algebra. We will have up to 3 student participants for each program. We especially encourage women, members of under-represented groups, first-generation college students, and veterans to apply. Support for the program has been provided by the National Science Foundation through an REU grant .

Summer 2024 Programs

 •  Algebraic Methods in Computational Biology
 •  Algorithmic Algebraic Geometry
 •  Number Theory
 •  Probability and Algebra

Program Expectations

  • The REU is a full-time summer position. Students are expected to work on mathematics - research, writing, giving/attending presentations, and so on - approximately 40 hours every week.
  • Students will give bi-weekly short presentations (5-10 minutes) on what they learn and their research results during the program.
  • Students will write a report on their research. This will be approximately 5-10 pages long.
  • Students will make individual final 20-minute mini-symposium presentations on their research projects during the last week of the program.
  • Students will learn LaTeX for writing mathematical articles, reports, and making presentations.
  • Students may learn to use and program a computer algebra system such as MATLAB, Sage, or Mathematica.


Applicants should be highly motivated undergraduates who are comfortable with calculus, basic matrix manipulations, and elementary linear algebra. No special prior experience with mathematical software or computers is required. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents and must not have received their bachelors degree before the start of the summer program.

Stipend and Support

Participating students will be provided free on-campus housing, along with an anticipated stipend of $4400 for the 8-week program, plus subsidized travel to and from College Station.
