 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/ 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
2015 in partnership with the Hong Kong University of Science and
Technology.  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, 2015 . 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
rips at ipam.ucla.edu   or call me at 310-825-4755.


Best regards,


Dimi Mavalski
