During the summer of 2002, undergraduate research opportunities will abound in the departments of statistics and biostatistics, physics, and mathematics in the College of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at Ohio State. First up, we have a new and exciting program in the department of statistics and biostatistics that offers students the opportunity to apply statistical methods to real problems.

On the other hand, the summer undergraduate research program in physics has been an Ohio State tradition for years. In addition to exciting research, participants take part in numerous fun summer activities as well, often including picnics and canoe trips. Travel and monthly stipends are available for qualified students for the physics program and the statistics program.

The program in mathematics provides gifted math students in high school and the first 2 years of their undergraduate experience the opportunity to explore number theory through a series of increasingly complex problems. Limited scholarships are available.

For more information about these undergraduate research opportunities in mathematics, statistics and biostatistics, and physics, please visit the departmental home pages. For general information, e-mail Melissa Weber at weber.254@osu.edu.
