The MSRI Undergraduate Program (MSRIUP) is a comprehensive summer program designed for undergraduate students who have completed two years of universitylevel mathematics courses and would like to conduct research in the mathematical sciences. 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.

General Description
During the summer, each of the 18 student participants will:
 participate in the mathematics research program under the direction of Dr. Rosa Orellana, Dartmouth College, a postdoc and two graduate students
 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
Application Materials
Applications for MSRIUP 2013 should be submitted via the MathPrograms listing, which lists the required application materials. Due to funding restrictions, only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply, and the proram cannot accept foreign students regardless of funding. In addition, students who have already graduated or will have graduated with a bachelor's degree by June 16, 2013 are not eligible to apply. Applications that are complete by March 3, 2013 are guaranteed full consideration.
