The GROW 2019 conference is aimed at female-identified undergraduate students who may be interested in pursuing a graduate degree in mathematics. The conference is open to undergraduates from all around the U.S. The organizers are currently applying for travel funding from granting agencies. If these applications are successful, we hope to cover the cost of attendance for all accepted undergraduate students.
