Description:
The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) runs a unique summer program for undergraduate students. The Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) provides an opportunity for exceptional students in math and related disciplines to work in teams on real world research projects proposed by a sponsor from industry or a national lab. Sponsors have included Google, Symantec, Los Alamos National Lab, the Aerospace Corporation, Los Angeles Police Department, AMD, IBM, US Airforce, and many others. The RIPS web site gives the full details including a link to the online application. We encourage all bright, young students to apply, especially women and minorities.

This is an educational and very exciting two month program near the heart of Los Angeles at one of the premiere educational institutions in the United States. If accepted the program covers the student's travel, housing and most meals, and offers a generous stipend. Students immerse themselves in research and learn how to deal with real world problems.

In addition to RIPS in Los Angeles, IPAM will offer RIPS-Singapore in 2019 in partnership with the National University of Singapore. This is an exciting opportunity for U.S. undergrads to work with students from Singapore and South-East Asia on projects sponsored by companies based in the region. English is the only language required for participation. The format is the same as RIPS-LA.
