Since 2010, Winthrop undergraduates have spent their summers undergoing mathematics research projects. Topics have ranged from cryptography, the study of secret codes, to developing mathematical models of colon cancer. Over 40 students have participated in mathematics research over the past four years, with funding provided by alumni, Winthrop University and a variety of external sources. Students interested in participating in summer research in 2016 should contact either Dr. K. Abernathy or Dr. Z. Abernathy.
Winthrop faculty have secured financial support for undergraduate research through a variety of external sources. However, funding is often targeted to particular goals, and may not be appropriate for all individual students. Please consider making a gift to help provide support for undergraduate research at Winthrop. These supplemental funds are necessary to ensure that all Winthrop students with a demonstrated commitment to mathematics have access to mentored undergraduate research experiences.
Funding helps ensure that undergraduates receive:
