​Criteria for Selection

The candidates will be selected based on the following criteria, which have not been ranked in any particular order:

  • The applicant’s academic qualifications;
  • The applicant’s previous research experience (if any);
  • The quality of the applicant’s letters of recommendation;
  • The applicant’s ability to work with others;
  • The applicant’s self-identification as a member of an underrepresented group; and
  • The applicant’s willingness to commit to follow-up research and presentations after the culmination of the project.

Teacher training programs typically enroll a high percentage of women. At the PIs’ home institution, two-thirds of the mathematics education majors are female. It is anticipated that at least half of the participants in the proposed program will be female.​
