> Dear Colleague,
>
> The 2009 Summer Math Institute (SMI) at Cornell will run from June 6  
> to August 1.  The SMI Program's primary purpose is to better prepare  
> undergraduates, particularly women and underrepresented minorities,  
> for the rigors of beginning courses in Ph.D. programs in the  
> mathematical sciences.  The main component of SMI in 2009 is an  
> algebra course at a level comparable to Cornell's honors  
> undergraduate algebra course.  There is also a project component to  
> SMI.  Detailed information is available at
>
>   http://www.math.cornell.edu/~smi/
>
> Please circulate this information to interested students in your  
> department.  It is expected that applicants have taken a standard  
> sophomore-level linear algebra course.  A further course in algebra,  
> linear algebra, number theory, or a related topic would also be  
> helpful but is not crucial.  Students who will graduate during the  
> 2008-2009 academic year are eligible to apply.  Applicants must be  
> US citizens or permanent residents.
>
> Thank you very much for your help.

> forward it as appropriate.  If you send us the new person's email,  
> we will update our list.
