All Taylor mathematics majors are encouraged to either pursue an internship or a directed research experience (or both!). Most of our scholarship happens in the summer, when students attend NSF-funded research experiences at other institutions, or Taylor's own Faculty-Mentored Undergraduate Scholarship program. The mathematics department believes deeply in the value of student research: students see themselves becoming scholars and professionals in their field, they learn new ways think about mathematics together with others, and they learn new ways to learn. Whether a student pursues graduate school, teaching, or industry, their vocation is enriched by this experience. Taylor students also do excellent work in these projects, as exemplified by this collection.
