The 2016 Pi Mu Epsilon National Meeting will be held at MAA MathFest in Columbus, OH, August 3 – 6, 2016
Pi Mu Epsilon members are eligible for generous funding if they present a 15 minute talk in the PME student sessions at Mathfest. Graduating Seniors are eligible for funding as are graduate students who wish to present work done as an undergraduate. Graduate students must not have completed more than 30 hours of graduate work and must get approval from the advisor of the PME chapter at their undergraduate institution.
Each chapter may designate up to 5 student speakers for transportation support of up to $600 per student with a $1200 per Chapter maximum. If a chapter is not sending any speakers to the conference it may send a delegate. Delegates are eligible for funding of half their transportation expenses up to $300. Transportation expenses include airfare, airport parking, ground transportation, and driving mileage.
In addition to travel expenses, Pi Mu Epsilon awards sustenance grants to help pay for students’ food and housing. These grants are funded by a generous grant from the National Security Agency and vary in value each year depending on the number of students needing funding.
