2024 Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education (EDGE) Summer Program

We're thrilled to announce that the National Institute for Modeling Biological Systems (NIMBioS) is hosting the 2024 Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education (EDGE) Summer Program! 

EDGE empowers women and gender nonconforming mathematicians from diverse backgrounds to excel in their PhD journeys. For over 25 years, EDGE has been a hub for diversity in mathematics.
