The Visiting and Early Scholars’ Experiences in Mathematics Research Experiences for Undergraduates (VERSEIM-REU) is an intensive ten-week summer research program in applied and pure mathematics. VERSEIM is sponsored by the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates under grant DMS 2050412 and the Department of Mathematics at Tufts University. 

VERSEIM scholars will be mentored by faculty members and graduate students in the Department of Mathematics and the VERSE Program at Tufts University. Many of our events will be joint with scholars in the VERSE program and other REUs at Tufts University. Our program is aimed at students early in their college career, and we are committed to enhancing the educational experiences of first-generation or underrepresented undergraduate students.


Where: Department of Mathematics, Tufts University

When: May 30 to August 5, 2022 (10 weeks)

Eligibility: This program is funded by the National Science Foundation and is open only to US citizens or permanent residents who are current students majoring in either mathematics or a related field at any US college or university.

Stipend: $6,000 for the ten weeks. Students will also receive a food and housing allowance.

Questions: e-mail

Application: Fill the online application form on, arrange for two letters of recommendation, send an unofficial transcript, a letter of motivation indicating your interests and career goals, and a resume.  Early applicants will receive priority.  Regular application deadline is March 1, 2022.
