As part of the Mathematical Sciences Collaborative Diversity Initiatives, nine mathematics institutes are pleased to host their annual pre-conference event, the 2015 Modern Math Workshop (MMW), on Oct. 28-29, 2015, in Washington, DC. The Workshop immediately precedes the 2015 Society for Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) annual meeting, Oct. 29-31. The Modern Math Workshop is intended to encourage minority undergraduates to pursue careers in the mathematical sciences and to assist undergraduates, graduate students and recent PhD’s in building their research networks. The Modern Math Workship begins with registration at noon on Wednesday, October 28 and ends at noon on Thursday, October 29.

The Modern Math Workshop presents 2 mini-courses for undergraduates and talks related to the research programs at the math institutes that would be of interest to graduate students and early career researchers.

Most participants attending this workshop are supported by SACNAS as part of the SACNAS National Conference. To apply for funding from SACNAS, please go to If you receive a notice from SACNAS that you are expected to attend the Modern Math Workshop (MMW), you will also be receiving a notice from us with a link for registration for MMW.

There is funding available directly from MMW to fund attendance at MMW and SACNAS. Priority for these funds will be given to minority graduate students and early career researchers. Applications will be via

The application process will start May 15, 2015 and end July 31, 2015. For more information, visit
