The BU Directed Reading Program (DRP) is a program that pairs undergraduate students with graduate student mentors to work together on an independent reading project in mathematics, applied mathematics, or statistics.

Our goal is to engage undergraduates who are curious and motivated to learn more about mathematics beyond what they may find in their coursework, in a way where their interests drive their learning experience. We hope the DRP will serve as a bridge between the undergraduate students and graduate students and add to a sense of community in the department.

Applications for the Spring 2023 DRP are now open! To apply, please complete this form no later than January 27, 2023. The final presentations from the fall semester will be held on Wednesday, January 25th and Thursday, January 26th. (Exact times and locations to be determined.)
