Mathematics Outreach Seminar and Training (MOST) Program
Apply starting on January 1, 2024.
Are you a woman (or someone who identifies as female) who is:
- An early-career mathematician (or someone in an allied field) with a PhD who wants to share your passion about the power of mathematics and its applications
- An advanced PhD candidate in math (or an allied field) interested in sharing your passion for mathematics with others?
Apply to join the Mathematics Outreach Seminar and Training (MOST) program!
This program starts in July with a multi-day training seminar hosted by the National Museum of Mathematics in collaboration with the Peoples Improv Theater (The PIT) in New York City. Participants will join a selective cohort of female mathematicians to develop their ability to share their knowledge and research with the general public in an engaging, easily accessible way.
Through training with the PIT, participants will sharpen their diction and word choice, develop an economy of words, and identify their unique presentation style. By speaking passionately about their area of mathematics and receiving feedback from their peers as well as from outreach experts in the MoMath community, participants will refine their voice and style as they create a talk designed to share their area of mathematical expertise with a general audience.
Then, over the course of the coming year, each participant will also present her talk to groups of young people, discussing her field of expertise and reaching hundreds of girls to excite them about math and serve as a role model as a female professional working in STEM. An honorarium of $400 will be paid for successful completion of the program.
The application process consists of completing a brief online form. To receive updates about the MOST program, sign up for MoMath’s mailing list.
