The Women in Math and Public Policy workshop is designed to bring together women in mathematics, science, engineering, and policy to work on pressing research topics in the fields of cybersecurity and climate change. These two topics were chosen because of their wide-reaching policy impacts and reliance on various mathematical techniques. The goal is to have a diverse and multidisciplinary cohort of women at different stages in their careers, from graduate students to senior researchers. In addition to working in groups on a specific research project, there will also be opportunities for networking and to attend talks by keynote speakers.

This workshop is organized by the RAND Corporation, a non-profit, nonpartisan public policy think tank, and UCLA’s Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics.

Due to the nature of this program, all participants are expected to attend the entire workshop (four days). Go to for more information.

We encourage students and recent PhDs to supply two letters of recommendation.

The application is now closed.

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