Welcome to the web site for the NSF-REU Program in Mathematics at Boise State University
The program is a nine week summer program in which undergraduate students experience independent research in mathematics motivated by applications to information security or genome biology. The program aims to immerse undergraduate students of diverse backgrounds in all facets of research in mathematics, and in applications to information security or the life sciences in a culture of close and daily collaboration with faculty. The nature of computing and complexity is the central unifying focus of the program.


  • Receive a stipend of $4000, free on campus housing and an allowance for meals.

  • Receive three undergraduate college credits from Boise State University.

  • Attend scientific workshops and seminars addressing mathematical techniques used in information security and genome
        remodeling, research presentation skills, computational skills and scientific writing.

  • Be part of the summer community of collaborators, students and faculty,  from all STEM disciplines and programs on campus.

  • Be an active participant of the Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars Program, a NASA-based program
        for high school students in Idaho.

  • Opportunities to present summer research results at an upcoming national conference.

  • Opportunity to present at the 2014 Idaho Conference on Undergraduate Research (ICUR).

  • Enjoy the various cultural, and social activities in and around Boise.

    "This program is engaging, challenging, and rigorous. I really cannot express in words how thankful I am for this program and just how surprised I am by the experience. I've learned so much, and I've had such wonderful intellectual conversations with my peers. I'm really going to miss the math community of this REU program."
