The Program for Research for Undergraduates (PRUV) is an undergraduate fellowship effort sponsored in part by the National Science Foundation and Trinity College of Arts & Sciences at Duke. Up to 8 students with a sincere desire and the ability to carry out research in mathematical sciences will be selected as PRUV Fellows each year.  You can see our current and past PRUV Fellows here:  PRUV Fellows
