Information: Karen Uhlenbeck, University of Texas at Austin,
uhlen@math.utexas.edu, (512) 471-1172.

INDEPENDENT RESEARCHER PROGRAM

Researchers in areas other than algebraic geometry who have
independent funding are invited to apply for participation in the
Summer Geometry Institute. All Summer Institute programs and
facilities will be available to these participants. Introductory
courses, joint education-research activities, and computer
facilities may be of particular interest. Researchers interested
in being involved with a future Summer Geometry Institute may wish
to use this opportunity to get acquainted with the program. Small
groups of collaborators from geographically separate areas are
particularly welcome to apply to use the facilities. Due to
limited lodging and office space, a relatively small number of
independent research slots are available. Additional Information:
Karen Uhlenbeck, University of Texas at Austin,
uhlen@math.utexas.edu, (512) 471-1172.

------------------------------------------------------------

APPLICATION PROCEDURES


For all programs except the High School Teacher Program, please
request application forms from the RGI address on the next page.
High School Teachers will be recruited locally. Names of local
high school site directors may be obtained from the main RGI
address.
__General information about each program should also be
requested from the main RGI address at the end of this file.__
In-depth information may be obtained from another source, if noted
in that program description below.

HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER PROGRAM

High school teachers, from geographic regions in proximity to
one of the participating universities (see page 3), who are
interested in deepening their knowledge of geometry and in
classroom reform in teaching geometry are encouraged to apply.
Teacher applications are for the full two year program, including
the summer institutes in 1993 and 1994, and the site programs
during the 1993-94 and 1994-95 school years (pending funding).
Additional information: Naomi Fisher, University of Illinois at
Chicago, U37158@uicvm.uic.edu, (312) 413-3749.

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM

Undergraduate mathematics majors interested in an intensive
research experience in geometry are encouraged to apply.
Undergraduates at all levels will be accepted. Additional
information: Robert Bryant, Duke University, bryant@math.duke.edu,
(919) 660-2805.

GRADUATE SUMMER SCHOOL

Graduate students beyond their basic courses, and recent Ph.D.s
in all fields of geometry are encouraged to apply. Those Ph.D.s
working in the field of Higher Dimensional Complex Geometry should
apply to the Research Program. We do not expect to fund Ph.D.s in
this program, except for those within four years of their Ph.D.
and who are not working in this field. Additional information:
Karen Uhlenbeck, University of Texas at Austin,
uhlen@math.utexas.edu, (512) 471-1172.

RESEARCH PROGRAM

Research mathematicians working in the field of Higher
Dimensional Complex Geometry are encouraged to apply. Anyone
with a Ph.D. degree (or expecting one by the summer of 1993) may
apply. We especially encourage recent Ph.D.s working in this field to
apply.


------------------------------------------------------------

The 1993 Summer Geometry Institute will be held from Sunday,
June 20th, through Saturday, July 17th, at Prospector Square
Hotel and Conference Center in Park City, Utah. The scenic
Park City area boasts many opportunities for recreation and
diversion.

Costs for accompanying guests or family members must be paid by
the individuals. A reduced-rate schedule is provided for guests
of Summer Institute participants. Accepted participants will be
notified by the institute about how to make travel and lodging
arrangements for themselves and their guests or family members.

_DO NOT MAKE TRAVEL OR LODGING ARRANGEMENTS UNTIL YOU ARE
NOTIFIED BY THE INSTITUTE._

Apply early! Application forms will be available after January
1, 1993, by phone, mail, or e-mail. Recommendation letters will
be required for undergraduates and graduate students.
Postdoctorates applying to the Graduate Summer School will also
need recommendation letters (optional for postdoctorate applicants
to the Research Program). Applications and recommendation letters
may be submitted via e-mail.


_DEADLINE TO APPLY IS MARCH 1, 1993._
