Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics

PHILADELPHIA, PASociety for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) has announced the establishment of the SIAM-Simons Undergraduate Summer Research Program. Through the support of the Simons Foundation, this new applied mathematics and computational science program will provide research, networking, and mentorship opportunities to U.S. students from underrepresented groups. This generous gift will allow the SIAM community to play a strong role in developing, expanding, and diversifying the next generation of researchers and practitioners.

“We are proud to partner with the Simons Foundation over the next five years in our shared efforts to broaden participation and engagement in the mathematical and computational sciences,” says Suzanne L. Weekes, Ph.D., SIAM Executive Director. “We continue to work towards the reality of a more robust, diverse, and inclusive STEM community. At SIAM, we are deeply committed to this work, and we are thankful for the Simons Foundation’s investment in our efforts.”

“It is deeply important that the identities of scientists and mathematicians reflect the diverse world we inhabit. The Simons Foundation is proud to partner with SIAM to diversify the next generation of researchers and practitioners in applied mathematics and computational science,” says David Spergel, Ph.D., President of the Simons Foundation.
