Mathematics-TFA Partnership

The Brown University Mathematics department and Teach for America have established a deferment partnership that allows college seniors who are accepted to both Teach for America and our graduate program to defer their acceptance to Brown for the two-year duration of the Teach for America program.

We strongly encourage deferred applicants to engage in professional development activities during their Teach for America membership, especially during the summers after the first and second years. Such activities may include summer undergraduate research programs, summer graduate courses or reading projects. Candidates are encouraged to contact the math department's director of graduate study for details regarding this program.
