Employment of actuaries and mathematicians and statisticians is projected to grow 24 and 33 percent, respectively from 2020 to 2030. -U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
The Math Path Program supports the recruitment, retention, and progression of undergraduates from diverse backgrounds in pathways to quantitative science graduate programs around the nation. Georgia State University leads the project in partnership with the National Math Alliance, with enthusiastic support from specific graduate programs at Arizona State University, the Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, and Purdue University, as well as Georgia State’s own College of Arts and Sciences and Robinson College of Business. Not only are we offering undergraduate student opportunities such as research assistantships and transition grants, but also we aim to strengthen the departmental and institutional practices known to promote student success at the graduate level.
The goal of the Math Alliance is simple: we want to be sure that every underrepresented or underserved American student with talent and the ambition has the opportunity to earn a doctoral degree in a mathematical or statistical science.
Their commitment is to build a national community of students, faculty, and staff who work together to transform our departments, colleges, and universities into institutions where all students are welcome. Math Alliance mentors come from a variety of schools all over the country. What they all have in common is a commitment to our Math Alliance Scholars.
There are many ways you can be a part of our Math Alliance Community, and we welcome you to join! If you are a student, please visit the page on how to become a Math Alliance Scholar. If you are a faculty member, read about becoming a Math Alliance Mentor. Please be sure to visit our faculty profiles page as well as our photos and videos.

Summer program: Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs)
GSU Math Path is delighted to congratulate Dr. Gennady Cymbalyuk as a winner of the 2022 GSURC Faculty Award for Undergraduate Project and Laboratory-Based Research. Thank you for your commitment to undergraduate research training, mentoring, and the Math Path Program!
Dr. Cymbalyuk investigates dynamic mechanisms underlying the generation of rhythmic activity by neurons and their circuits. For example, specialized rhythmic circuits produce bursting activity patterns that control locomotion, breathing, or heartbeat in invertebrates. He is interested to understand how these rhythms are regulated through neuromodulation so that the circuits produce robust functional rhythms but yet are flexible to adjust to changing environments or behavioral goals.
