## NASA Internships

## SURPS

At Pomona, particularly good for freshmen who may have a hard time getting into other programs.

## Other Things to Consider

- If you have taken or are taking
**linear algebra**, you are qualified for the majority of these programs. Many students at these programs will have taken only linear algebra, and probably a very basic and non-theoretical one like you have/will. - Emphasize the
**theoretical math background**you have, even if you haven't taken lots of upper-division pure math classes. The entire curriculum at Pomona is very theoretical, and you will have a stronger theory background than many applicants. Also, emphasize your computer science skills. Even 1 or 2 classes in CS on the 5Cs will make you*very*valuable to almost any research program, theoretical or not. **Freshmen:**getting into REUs can be challenging as a first year. There are programs for freshmen, but they are poorly advertised and not compiled in any one place. Even the one I am familiar with is not listed any more. THEY DO EXIST. You just have to work harder to find them. Also consider a SURP, which will give you valuable experience to prepare you for an REU.
