RAMMP 2023 Summer Research Program

The Recruitment and Mentoring in Mathematics Program (RAMMP) will engage 8-10 area scholars in summer research activities in mathematics, hopefully culminating in publishable research. Undergraduate scholars will work in groups on research problems guided by faculty members. A stipend of $4,000 (taxable) will be paid to participants in the program.

In addition to the research activities, there will be a weekly colloquium and learning seminars offered. The colloquium schedule will be posted here later in the spring.

Location and dates

The RAMMP summer program for 2023 will be held May 30-July 20. We will meet Monday through Thursday each week. Circumstances permitting, we expect most program activities to be conducted in person, with possible supplementary virtual meetings.


This year's mentors are Eli Amzallag (CUNY--CCNY), Miodrag Iovanov (University of Iowa), Jay Jorgenson (CUNY--CCNY) and Fei Ye (CUNY--QCC). They will lead research projects in the areas of algebraic geometry, combinatorics and graph theory.


The program is open to all undergraduate and master's students in the NYC area who have completed mathematics courses requiring the writing of rigorous proofs. An introduction to proof course (e.g., Bridge to Advanced Mathematics, Discrete Mathematics) is sufficient.

Participants may not take classes or hold other jobs for the duration of the program and are expected to attend all scheduled activities.

Application Requirements

The application requires:

For full consideration submit your complete application by April 7th. Later applications will be considered if space is available.


Participants will work in groups of 2-4 students on research problems with a faculty mentor. The groups will meet daily with their mentor to discuss the project. In addition there will be a weekly colloquium featuring interesting mathematics at the level of the participants in the program.


This program is supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. DMS-1820731 which funds a proposal jointly written by Alliance members Gautam Chinta, Robert Donley, Pat Hooper, Sandra Kingan, Stephen Preston, Cesar Valverde, Bart Van Steirteghem, and Fei Ye.

We also are grateful to The City College of New York for hosting this program and to Brooklyn College, Medgar Evers College, and Queensborough Community College for their support.
