Student Opportunities


The Applied Mathematics Research Program for Undergrads is an REU site lead by Professor Svetlana Roudenko and Professor Stephen Tennenbaum. The AMRPU hosts undergraduates interested in pursing research in mathematics and statistics. The program has fostered studies in partial differential questions, graph theory, and many more.

More information available on the AMRPU website.

Directed Reading Program

The Directed Reading Program is a way to expose undergraduate math majors to upper level mathematics with the help of a graduate student mentor. The two students work through papers and books to better understand difficult topics. The DRP is lead by graduate students Alex Rodriguez and Jose Medel.

Applications open every semester.

Joint Applied Mathematics Scholarship

The S-STEM Scholarship, or the Scholarships for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Students, is a program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) that provides scholarships to academically talented, financially need students in STEM fields. The goal of the program is to increase the number of low-income, academically-talented students who pursue degrees in STEM fields, and to help them graduate with a degree in those fields. The scholarship can be used for tuition, fees, books, and other education-related expenses.

More information available on the JAMS page.

Subtropic Symposium for Upcoming Mathematicians

The Subtropic Symposium for Upcoming Mathematicians, SSUM, is a graduate student lead research conference that highlights mathematics done by graduate students and upper level undergraduate students. The conference is free to students.

For more information reach out to event coordinator, Justin Wisby, or on the SSUM page.

Student Organizations

  • SiGMA

    The Students in Graduate Mathematics Association is a student organization led by President Justin Wisby which operates with the goal of making mathematics more accessible. Hosting both academic and recreational activities, SiGMA aims to help all aspiring mathematicians and math enthusiasts, even those outside the graduate program.

    More information available on the SiGMA Panther Connect Page.


    The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) chapter at Florida International University (FIU) aims to support and promote the participation of women in mathematics. The chapter hosts events such as guest lectures, workshops, and networking opportunities for students and faculty. Through these activities, the AWM chapter at FIU works to create a community that encourages and empowers women in the mathematical sciences.
