America's Tensor Program for Women in Mathematics

Grant Number:
Funding Agency: Mathematical Association of America
PI: Braley, Emily Laura and Sarah Schott and Emily Braley
Effective Dates: 2015/03-2016/05

Description: This Tensor Women in Mathematics grant was awarded for the purpose of funding the Southeastern Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics. This conference, run by me and Sarah Schott, was hosted at Duke on November 7th and 8th. The conference drew roughly seventy five undergraduate participants, and awarded them the opportunity to present undergraduate research, attend talks by our keynote speakers, and interact with fellow female mathematicians. I hope that this will ultimately lead to more female applicants to our graduate program. There were several women who emailed after the conference to inquire about graduate school applications..
