Computational Science Training for Undergraduates in the Mathematical Sciences (CSUMS): The goal of Computational Science Training for Undergraduates in the Mathematical Sciences (CSUMS) is to enhance computational aspects of the education and training of undergraduate students in the mathematical sciences -- mathematics and statistics -- and to better prepare these students to pursue careers and graduate study in fields that require integrated strengths in computation and the mathematical sciences. The core of the activity is long-term research experiences for cohorts of at least six undergraduates. Projects must focus on research topics that require interplay between computation and mathematics or statistics. They should expose students to contemporary mathematics, statistics, and computation, addressed with modern research tools and methods. That is, projects must be genuine research experiences rather than rehearsals of research methods. Interdisciplinary projects are encouraged, and appropriate mentorship from the disciplines involved is welcomed. In addition, we expect that projects will strengthen the research and education capacity, infrastructure, and culture of the participating institutions. To this end, we welcome projects that create models for education in the mathematical sciences and influence the direction of academic programs for a broad range of students. CSUMS is a joint effort of the Education and Human Resources (EHR) and the Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) directorates at the National Science Foundation (NSF).
