Summer after an REU // Non-REU summer programs

Post by complexcat » Thu Aug 22, 2019 2:55 pm

I attended an REU this past summer as a rising junior. What are some summer opportunities for students like me to consider for next summer? Is it typical to apply for a second REU?

Here are some programs I am currently aware of:
  • PCMI Undergraduate Summer School
    Research opportunities at home school
    Princeton Summer School in Geometric Analysis
    Women and Mathematics Program (WAM) at the Institute for Advanced Study
    Prestigious REU's (Emory and Duluth, for example)
    Budapest Semesters in Mathematics Summer Program
    Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS)
If you have been a participant in one of these programs, please feel free to share your experience. I am hoping this thread can become a resource for a wide range of people.

It definitely is typical to apply for a second REU, and there's no reason it has to be prestigious. In fact I believe having done an REU the previous year increases your chance at getting into a second REU.
