 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, IBM,
Standard & Poor's, Jet Propulsion Lab, and many others. The RIPS web site
at *http://www.ipam.ucla.edu/rips/ <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 offer RIPS-Hong Kong in
2014 in partnership with the Hong Kong University of Science and
This is an exciting opportunity for U.S. undergrads to work
with students from Hong Kong / China 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; two American and two
Chinese students will form a team.

The deadline for applications is February 12, 2014 . 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

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
rips2014 at ipam.ucla.edu <rips2012 at ipam.ucla.edu>     or call me at

Best regards,

Dimi Mavalski
