MathPrograms.org

Program application hosting by the AMS and the team behind MathJobs.org!

Whether you're listing your January workshop or trying to find an Undergraduate Research Experience for the summer, the MathPrograms service is a convenient way to find qualified applicants and exciting opportunities.


Getting Started

Just visit MathPrograms.org and choose your appropriate role (for program applicants or program staff) from the middle of the page to create an account. Accounts for applicants are free; program accounts will be charged a subscription fee. Check the user documentation for assistance with the initial steps of browsing programs, viewing potential applicants, listing your program, uploading the necessary application documents, and requesting reference letters. The AMS Membership & Programs staff is available at mathprograms@ams.org to assist with issues that may arise.


Features

This site is meant to allow programs in the mathematical sciences such as undergraduate summer research programs, small travel grant programs, and various "admissions" settings to have a site for accepting, reading, rating, and responding to electronic applications. As usual, security is a prime consideration and program directors who set up accounts will find themselves responsible for setting ALL faculty reader and group manager access to their account. They will also enter program announcements for public display and control their application form. One department or organization can sign up for an account and use it up to seven times per year - for instance, for several different programs, or for one program that conducts several application cycles within one year.

As the system grows, users will find many conveniences in the system:

  • applicants answer "cover sheet" questions only once, then proceed to make applications and answer customized questions
  • applicants sign up reference writers to submit confidential letters; one letter may serve for all programs applied to
  • program directors can assign read/rank/comment access to colleagues all over the world, if needed, during the application evaluation process; they can also limit access to just one application set or part of an application set
  • program directors can arrange a confidential EEO section in their application that will report compiled data
  • programs can download data to their own computers either for use in word processing or spreadsheets, or as a larger permanent storage file
  • programs can require a nominator instead of a direct submission by an applicant

Designed with students of all ages in mind, MathPrograms.org is the obvious choice for accepting and reviewing electronic applications for your next program!
