Another summer possibility, particularly well-described.  Look at it, but
also bear in mind that there's a lot more like this, with application due
dates typically in February or March.  (I will resist the temptation to
forward every single announcement to you.)

 Dear Colleagues,

We are now accepting applications for the 2008 Trinity REU in Mathematics
Program (final approval for support for our 2008 Program from the National
Science Foundation is pending). In past years, you have recommended students
to us for our Program, and we hope that you can pass this e-mail on to your
students who might be interested in a research experience next summer.
Instructions for applicants and the necessary forms can be found on our web
page http://ramanujan.math.trinity.edu/tumath/REU/index.shtml .

Topics for 2008 are

   - Algebra,
   - Combinatorics, and
   - Number Theory.

   - *Dates:* This years program begins May 27th and ends July 25th.
   - *Stipends and Allowances:* $3,500 stipend, free campus housing,

   present the results of their REU work.
   - *Requirements:* Must (1) be a citizen or permanent resident of the
   United States or its possessions, (2) be a full time undergraduate
   mathematics major as of September 2008, and (3) devote full time to the

   seven weeks on the Trinity campus.
   - *Selection:* Applicants are selected based on mathematical
   creativity, good work habits, and familiarity with the area in which they
   wish to work.
   - *Non US Students: *International students do not qualify for NSF
   funding, but those interested in participating with their own support should
   contact the Program Director (schapman at trinity.edu) about

My apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message.



Best,
