### Directed Reading Program

The Directed Reading Program (DRP) pairs undergraduate students with graduate students for one-on-one independent studies. The program was started at the University of Chicago, but it is now running in several mathematics departments in the country, including UC Berkley, Rutgers, UT Austin, UMaryland, Stanford, Brown, Indiana, MIT, Tufts, Madison, UConn, Brandeis, and Yale.

Undergraduate applicants who are selected for DRP positions will be paired with graduate student mentors based on mathematical interests and availability. Once paired, the mentee and mentor jointly decide on a specific topic of study. Most projects are based on a particular book or article that the mentee reads at his/her own pace, guided and supplemented by the mentor. For graduate students, the time commitment is only one hour a week to meet with their mentee. The details of these meetings are left up to the mentee/mentor pairs. In addition to the meetings, the mentee is expected to work independently for at least four hours each week. At the end of the semester, each student gives a short presentation on a topic they have studied.
