2008 Grants for TENSOR-SUMMA Program: Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement
The Tensor Foundation has provided funding for the MAA to award grants for programs designed to encourage pursuit and enjoyment of mathematics among middle school students, high school students, and/or beginning college students from groups traditionally under-represented in the field of mathematics. College and university mathematical sciences faculty and their departments and institutions may submit proposals. They should collaborate with secondary and middle school mathematics faculty as appropriate depending on the focus of the project. Proposed programs may replicate existing successful programs, adapt components of such programs, or be innovative. The deadline for proposals February 12, 2008.

2008 Grants for Women and Mathematics Projects
The MAA plans to award grants for projects designed to encourage college and university women or high school and middle school girls to study mathematics. The Tensor Foundation, working through the MAA, is soliciting college, university and secondary mathematics faculty (in conjunction with college or university faculty) and their departments and institutions to submit proposals. Projects may replicate existing successful projects, adapt components of such projects, or be innovative. The deadline for proposals is February 12, 2008. For more information visit /wam/tensor.html.
2008 National Research Experience for Undergraduates Program
Funded by the National Science Foundation Division of Mathematical Sciences, the National Security Agency and The Moody's Foundation, the MAA Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement (SUMMA) program supports the participation of mathematics undergraduates from underrepresented groups in focused and challenging research experiences to increase their interest in advanced degrees and careers in mathematics. The deadline for proposals for this summer is February 21, 2008. For more information visit /nreup/.
