Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS): If you are interested in actively researching mathematics outside the classroom, then the URS is a great opportunity. There are funds available: up to $2,000 for Minnesota State Foundation Student Research Awards, up tp $1,100 for URC Large Grants, and up to $500 for URC Small Grants. For more information, feel free to explore the URS.
