Undergraduate Research Bursaries

London Mathematical Society Undergraduate Research Bursaries 2017

"It was a crucial experience for me and my decisions about my future."

 

"I was always quite interested in pursuing a PhD, taking part in this project has made this a certainty.  It's only been a few days since the project wound to a close and I'm already wanting to start on something else."

 

"I feel like the last 8 weeks have been one of the most significant ones of my academic career thus far in influencing my future plans."

 

"This opportunity has given valuable experience of what a career in research might be like and has definitely inspired me to pursue one [ …] I would thoroughly recommend applying for this bursary to anyone who wants to find out what a career in mathematical research might be like."

 

The purpose of the awards is to give experience of research to undergraduates to explore the potential of becoming a researcher and to encourage them to consider a career in scientific research.

The awards provide support for the student at a rate of £180 per week (or £190 per week in London), for a period of between 6 and 8 weeks.

 

THE 2017 SCHEME IS NOW CLOSED TO APPLICATIONS. 

 

It is expected that decisions about the 2017 applications will be communicated to Research Supervisors in May 2017.  Any queries about the scheme may be addressed to Katy Henderson (urb@lms.ac.uk).
