Dear Professor, Advisor, Faculty or Staff,





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 Pixar, Microsoft, Symantec, Los
Alamos, the Aerospace Corporation, Amgen, Arete, Jet Propulsion Lab,
and many others. The RIPS web site at http://www.ipam.ucla.edu/rips/
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 again offer RIPS-Beijing
in 2010 in partnership with Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA).  This is
an exciting opportunity for U.S. undergrads to work with Chinese
students on projects sponsored by an MSRA research group in China for
the summer.  English is the only language required for participation.
The format is the same as RIPS-LA; two American and two Chinese
students will form a team.



In addition to the above in 2010 we are starting in another location –
RIPS-Berlin in partnership with MATHEON. We’re proud to offer this
opportunity for undergrads to work with European students on projects
in Germany for the summer. English is the only language required for
participation.  The format is the same as RIPS-LA; two American and
two European students will form a team.



The deadline for applications is February 15, 2010. Please refer your
students to the site and encourage them to apply. (Note: graduating
seniors are eligible for all programs; international students may
apply for RIPS-LA only).



I have attached a PDF poster with this email. If you’d like to request
copies of this poster or for more information on RIPS, please email
rips2010 at ipam.ucla.edu or call me at 310-825-4755.
