Rich Summer Internships

The Dr. Barnett and Jean Hollander Rich Mathematics Summer Internships, in amounts up to $6,000 each, are awarded annually to upper division mathematics majors or Master's students. The awards are used to support summer activities that enhance the applicant's mathematics education in the workplace or through faculty-supervised research. Applications will be available at the bottom of this page in the spring semester of each academic year.

$250 may be awarded to graduate or undergraduate students for the first presentation of their faculty mentored work in the form of a poster or talk at a conference or non-club CCNY event, or for a single authored article accepted for publication in a refereed professional or student journal. Additional awards of $100 may be given up to two times if the same talk or poster is presented elsewhere. Each of these awards is subject to approval of the Rich committee upon presentation of sufficient evidence of the presentation(s) or acceptance of the paper.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates

This National Science Foundation program supports student participation in summer research at selected universities and colleges in the U.S. Students apply directly to the sponsoring institution. Participants receive a substantial stipend and often travel and living expenses. The Assistant Chair will assist students in selecting a suitable program.

The department has a Rich Research Experience Scholarship to further support students participating in such summer research experiences.
