The 2014 MSRI Undergraduate Program (MSRI-UP) is a comprehensive summer program designed for undergraduate students who have completed at least two years of university-level mathematics courses and would like to conduct research in the mathematical sciences.
The main objective of the MSRI-UP is to identify talented students, especially those from underrepresented groups, who are interested in mathematics and make available to them meaningful research opportunities, the necessary skills and knowledge to participate in successful collaborations, and a community of academic peers and mentors who can advise, encourage and support them through a successful graduate program.
Due to funding restrictions, only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply and the program cannot accept foreign students regardless of funding.
Application Deadline: Applications submitted by February 15, 2014 will receive full consideration.
