> Dear Colleague,

> We are again running the Summer Math Institute (SMI) at Cornell from June 8 – August 3, 2013.  The SMI Program aims to prepare undergraduates for the challenges of graduate school in the mathematical sciences.  The primary focus is a rigorous algebra course taught  at the level of Dummit and Foote's Abstract Algebra, comparable to Cornell's honors undergraduate algebra course.  There is also a project/research component to SMI, and regular opportunities to interact with visiting speakers from other universities and from industry.  We are committed to increasing diversity in the mathematical sciences, and particularly encourage women and students from underrepresented groups to apply to 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 abstract algebra, linear algebra, number theory, or a related topic would also be helpful.  Students who will graduate during the 2012-2013 academic year are eligible to apply.  Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents.  The deadline for applications is February 15, 2013. We expect to notify successful applicants around March 10, 2013.
