high school students be successful in their college preparatory mathematics classes. Participants learn about topics in Algebra II as preparation for taking Algebra II or integrated Math III when they return to school in the fall. All expenses are paid by the California State University at Fullerton.

Tensor-SUMMA Grants: Strengthening Underrepresented Minority Mathematics Achievement (http://www.fullerton.edu/sa/miss/)

The Mathematical Association of America awards up to $6,000 to college and university mathematical science faculty and departments for programs designed to encourage the pursuit and enjoyment of mathematics among students in middle school, high school, or beginning in college from groups traditionally underrepresented in the field of mathematics. This program, funded by the Tensor Foundation, supports activities such as preparation for competitions within the mathematical sciences, math circles, student group and individual research experiences, summer mathematics camp, and math club activities.

The Texas Prefreshman Engineering Program (http://www.prep-usa.org/portal/texprep/)

The Texas Prefreshman Engineering Program (TexPrep) identifies achieving middle and high school students with an interest in engineering, science, technology, and other mathematics-related areas and strengthens their potential for careers in these fields. TexPREP is a collaborative effort of colleges and universities throughout Texas that encourages students to begin preparing early for scientific and engineering career paths in school. Women and members of minority groups traditionally underrepresented in these areas continue to be target groups.

PROGRAMS AND ORGANIZATIONS AIMED AT UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE STUDENTS FROM UNDERREPRESENTED MINORITIES

California State University Alliance for Minority Participation Project (http://students.ucsd.edu/academics/research/undergraduate-research/opportunities/camp.html)

Many California state universities and partnering community colleges have a CSU-AMP program aimed at increasing the number of bachelor’s degree recipients in science, engineering, and mathematics among historically underrepresented groups in these fields. CSU-AMP involves students
