Undergraduate Research

The following are research opportunities for Stanford undergraduates.  The department does not offer any research opportunities for undergraduates who are not Stanford students.


SURIM, the Stanford Undergraduate Research Institute in Mathematics, is a ten-week program that provides Stanford undergraduates the opportunity to work on mathematical problems in an extra-curricular context. Most students will work on interesting mathematical problems in a collaborative environment. A number will work one-on-one with faculty member. Summer funding will be provided to all participants, thanks to VPUE.

See the SURIM page for more information.

Honors Thesis

Honors Math majors research and write a senior honors thesis under the direction and guidance of one of our faculty.  Honors majors enroll in Math 197: Senior Honors Thesis with their advisor.  See our Honors in the Major page, including our Math 197 Guidelines.
