Mathematics & Statistics Department Summer Fellowships

The Mathematics & Statistics Department has established two summer research/reading fellowships.

Emmy Noether Memorial Fellowship

The Emmy Noether Memorial Fellowship at Reed College was established by an anonymous Reed math alumnus interested in honoring an inspirational figure in the field of mathematics and creating opportunities for more mathematicians like her. It is designated for a continuing Reed student from a gender, racial, or ethnic group that is underrepresented within mathematics. The fellowship offers a $5,120 stipend for an eight-week research or reading project conducted with a Reed Mathematics and Statistics faculty member.

Professor Thomas Wieting Mathematics and Physics Student Fellowship Fund

The Professor Thomas Wieting Mathematics and Physics Student Fellowship Fund was established through donations in honor of Mathematics Professor Tom Weiting, who taught at Reed for more than 50 years and had interests in differential geometry, analysis, and mathematical physics. The fellowship offers a $5,120 stipend to a continuing Reed student for an eight-week research project in Mathematics and Statistics and/or Physics. The project does not have to take place at Reed, and additional funds are available for travel if that is necessary. Priority will be given to projects in the intersection of mathematics and physics.

Note that the Noether and Wieting Research Fellows will be selected from students who do not receive funding through the RCSRF.

Application Deadline

Wednesday, March 8th, 2023 at 12 PM noon.
