Program Description:    

The Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) Programs provide an opportunity for talented undergraduate students to work in teams on a 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. The program is nine weeks long. IPAM provides each undergraduate student with a travel allowance and a stipend of $3,500. Housing and most meals are also included. See below for more information on each program. Encouraging the careers of women and minority mathematicians and scientists is an important component of IPAM's mission and we welcome their applications.

RIPS Los Angeles

RIPS-LA runs from June 25 - August 24, 2018. Students will live in residence halls on the UCLA campus and will work at IPAM. We expect to have nine projects, but the sponsors and projects are yet to be selected.

International students are eligible to apply for RIPS-LA. Those with F-1 visas who are enrolled at a U.S. university must obtain a “CPT” in order to participate in the program. This will likely require you to register for an internship or independent study class through your school. Please ask your international student office if you qualify for a CPT before applying to RIPS.

For more information, see the RIPS 2018 web page.

RIPS Hong Kong

In collaboration with Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), IPAM recruits eight U.S. students to work on cross-cultural teams with eight HKUST students on four projects, each sponsored by a company based in the region. The program is nine weeks (June 11 - August 10, 2018).

Students in Hong Kong: please consult the HKUST announcement for information and the application for local participants.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for RIPS-Hong Kong. English is the only language required for participation. The local students, academic mentors and industry mentors will speak English.

The beautiful HKUST campus overlooks beautiful Port Shelter on the Clear Water Bay peninsula, several miles from the city center. Public transportation is convenient and inexpensive. Weekends are available for sightseeing. For more information: see the RIPS-Hong Kong web page.

IPAM is committed to promote equity and diversity in the mathematical sciences. We strongly encourage members of traditionally underrepresented groups including women to apply.
