The MSRIUP summer program is designed for undergraduate students who have completed two years of universitylevel mathematics courses and would like to conduct research in the mathematical sciences. 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. The academic portion of the 2012 program will be led by Dr. Matthias Beck.

General description
During the summer, each of the 18 student participants will:
 participate in the mathematics research program under the direction of Dr. Beck
 complete a research project done in collaboration with other MSRIUP students
 give a presentation and write a technical report on his/her research project
 attend a series of colloquium talks given by leading researches in their fields
 attend workshops aimed at developing skills and techniques needed for research careers in the mathematical sciences and
 learn techniques that will maximize a student's likelihood of admissions to graduate programs as well as the likelihood of winning fellowships
 receive a $3100 stipend, lodging, meals and round trip travel to Berkeley, CA.
After the summer, each student will:
 have an opportunity to attend a national mathematics or science conference where students will present their research
 be part of a network of mentors that will provide continuous advice in the long term as the student makes progress in his/her studies
 be contacted regarding future research opportunities
The main objective of the MSRIUP 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.
The objective is designed to contribute significantly toward meeting the program goal of increasing the number of graduate degrees in the mathematical sciences, especially doctorates, earned by U.S. citizens and permanent residents by cultivating heretofore untapped mathematical talent within the U.S. Black, Hispanic/Latino and Native American communities.
