The Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) Program provides an opportunity for talented undergraduates studying math, computer science, and related disciplines to work in teams on real-world research projects proposed by sponsors from industry or the public sector. The student team, with support from their academic mentor and industry mentor, will research the problem and present their results, both orally and in writing, at the end of the program.

RIPS-LA students will live in residence halls on the UCLA campus and will work at IPAM. They expect to have nine projects. The project sponsors are announced in March. Projects vary, but all involve some math, statistics, data, and computing.

Eligibility criteria:

  1. International students are eligible to apply for RIPS-LA, as are graduating seniors.
  2. You must be at least 18 years of age to participate in the program.
  3. Students with a strong background in mathematics and an interest in seeing how mathematics is used in the real world are encouraged to apply.
  4. Proficiency (or at least some experience) in computer science, data analysis or numerical computation is valuable, but not necessary for everyone.
  5. Applicants who will complete their bachelor’s degree between December and June of the current academic year are accepted.

Funding:

The REU program is nine weeks. IPAM provides each undergraduate student with a travel allowance and a stipend of $3,500. Housing and most meals are also included.

About the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM):

IPAM was founded in 2000 by Mark Green, Tony Chan, and Eitan Tadmor as an NSF Mathematical Sciences Institute with a grant from the NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences.   Over 2,000 visitors per year attend its workshops, long programs, student research programs, summer schools, and other programs.

IPAM seeks to bring the full range of mathematical techniques to bear on the great scientific challenges of our time. They sponsor programs that bring together researchers from different disciplines or from different areas of mathematics, with the goal of sparking interdisciplinary collaboration that continues long after the IPAM program ends.
