CURM (located at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah) promotes undergraduate research in mathematics throughout the United States by:
- training professors as mentors for undergraduate students doing research;
- providing funds to professors to establish undergraduate student research groups;
- advising professors on how to organize and continue to operate undergraduate research groups; and,
- preparing undergraduate students to succeed in graduate studies and careers in the mathematical sciences.
To help achieve these objectives, CURM awards mini-grants each year to professors at various institutions across the United States to assist them financially, instructionally, and organizationally in operating successful undergraduate research groups at their own institutions during the academic year. Special emphasis is given to women in mathematics and participants from undergraduate institutions (i.e., institutions that do not offer Ph.D.'s in mathematics). CURM is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) grant #DMS-0636648 / #DMS-1148695 and by Brigham Young University.
