Subject: UCLA RIPS - Summer Research opportunity for undergraduate students


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 Google, Symantec, Los
Alamos National Lab, the Aerospace Corporation, Los Angeles Police
Department, Arete, IBM, 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 2018
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, 2018. 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
