Resources, support, and communication

As a Byrne Scholar, you may use up to $5000 per year (up to a total of $15,000 during your time at Dartmouth) for enrichment activities such as research, internships, or attending conferences. The application form is below under Request Funding.

Archita Harathi ’22 and Maria Roodnitsky ’22 have offered to be mentors for the Class of ’23 Byrne Scholars. Feel free to reach out to them with any questions about the program or about Dartmouth for which you want to hear a student’s perspective.

All scholars are members of the Dartmouth email group byrne_scholars@math.dartmouth.edu which we will use to inform you of news, events, and opportunities.

We hope you join our informal dinners where everyone can meet each other and talk about recent projects. We usually have these once per term. Professor Elizalde has hosted recent dinners at his place near East Wheelock. In addition, you are very welcome to organize other informal Byrne gatherings, whether they involve a mathematical activity or are just social gatherings to get to know each other. Professor Elizalde can assist with coordination and there are budget funds available to cover pizza, snacks, etc.

Finally, you are welcome to use the dedicated study room in Kemeny 121. Kindly be respectful of this space which the department graciously provides.
