Welcome to OURFA²M²

This is the Online Undergraduate Resource Fair for the Advancement and Alliance of Marginalized Mathematicians. 

You're a part of OURFA²M² now.

The 4th Annual OURFA²M² Conference was held on November 18-19, 2023. 

Recordings of the talks will be available in the near future. Links will be sent via email to the address used for registration.

If you are interested in joining us for the next year, we are currently recruiting new organizers. 

See Join the Crew for more details!

Apply here by June 2!

Our Mission

OURFA2M2 is run for undergraduate mathematicians, by current and recent undergraduate mathematicians. As early career mathematicians ourselves, we think a lot about the career-building opportunities we missed out on because we weren’t “in the know.” This is often because we didn’t come from families with ties to academia, didn’t attend the schools that those opportunities are promoted at, don't fit the mold of a "typical" mathematician in the eyes of those who should be looking out for us, or just slipped through the cracks of the educational pipeline in another way. Our goal is to share those resources with other undergrads so that more of us will know about and have access to the kind of career-building opportunities that were valuable to us or that we wish we’d known about sooner.

Please feel free to contact us at ourfa2m2@gmail.com with questions, recommendations, or anything else you'd like to share with us. We're passionate about this project and want to make it as beneficial to as many of our undergrad mathematician peers as possible. 

You're not alone on your mathematical journey. You're with us now.

- Ashka Dalal, Gavi Dhariwal, Bowen Li, Zoe Markman, tahda queer, Jenna Race, Luke Seaton, Salina Tecle, Lee Trent

Help us by recommending speakers!

If you know someone (from any career stage) who you think would be a great speaker for OURFA²M², nominations are now open. Self nominations are also welcome and encouraged! The form has explanations for the types of talks we're planning in case you do not know where someone may fit. The more information you can give about the speaker, especially why they are a good fit for the type of talk you nominate them for, the more likely we will be able to invite them based on your recommendation. That's especially true for people who don't have easy to find websites or CVs!
