`If you'd like suggestions about mentoring and research development for grad. students and beyond, check here.`

The Math. Association of America has a teaching support program for new college and university profs, Project NEXT.

The Mathematical Research Communities is a research support program for recent Ph.D.s. It provides summer conferences in a range of fields and then provides longer term mentoring and support. I was involved with the 2009 Inverse Problems conference, and it was a blast!

Some Free and legal math books are** here.**

**Math Careers**

Here's a good reason to consider a math career if you like math (mathematician is always rated one of the most satisfying careers).

**K-12 Teaching**

NEW!! **Tufts has received $2.1 million from the Noyce/NSF Scholarship Program to
support students to teach middle- and high-school math and science. We are
now recruiting Math and science majors to receive a full scholarship to the
Tufts Master of Arts in Teaching program and a stipend and special
mentoring while they teach in urban schools.
