## Welcome to Cornell Math's Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR/REU)

This program provides the opportunity for undergraduate students of mathematics to participate in leading-edge research. Each year, we offer three different projects, each led by an expert in the field.

See the project descriptions for more information on the current program.
