May 28, 2014 — Yukihide Nakada, a junior at Allegheny College, has been accepted into the highly competitive Math in Moscow program.
The program—which is sponsored by the Independent University of Moscow, the Higher School of Economics and the Moscow Center for Continuous Mathematical Education—allows students to spend a semester in Moscow studying with internationally recognized mathematicians in what is generally regarded as one of the leading programs in the world.
Visiting Professor of Religious Studies and History Patrick Jackson identifies and mentors high-achieving students for national fellowships and other competitive programs.
“The Math in Moscow program is fiercely competitive, with an acceptance rate in the single digits,” he said. “Yuki is a remarkably talented mathematician, however, so I’m not at all surprised that he was accepted. From the moment I began to work with him on the application, I was impressed by his intelligence, maturity and poise. I expect that he’ll do very well.” (more…)
