The MAA requests proposals for funding for the 2009-2010 Regional Undergraduate Mathematics Conferences. The grant DMS-0846477 from the Division of Mathematical Sciences at the National Science Foundation provides support for institutions or groups of institutions that wish to initiate or expand undergraduate mathematics conferences. The awards from the grant are intended to cover a portion of the typical expenses involved with hosting the conference. It is anticipated that most awards will be between $1,000 and $4,000, but smaller and larger requests will be considered where appropriate. Talks presented at funded conferences should be accessible to a wide range of undergraduate students. Conferences may assume any format that accomplishes the object of the grant, but deviations from successful formats should be fully explained.

The review committee is particularly interested in expanding the program to regions of the country that do not traditionally offer undergraduates an opportunity to give mathematical presentations.
