6.  PROGRAMS, 2013–16

For descriptions of our current and future semester- and year-long Scientific Programs, please visit https://www.msri.org/web/msri/scientific/programs



The 7th annual MSRI Undergraduate Program (MSRI-UP) will take place at MSRI from June 15–July 28, 2013.  This comprehensive summer program offers 18 undergraduates the opportunity 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.

The eight NSF-funded US mathematics institutes created a collaborative diversity initiative that began in the fall of 2011.  This program sponsors several mathematics and diversity oriented workshops per year.  The next activity in this series is the Modern Math Workshop, which will take place October 2–3, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas, preceding the annual SACNAS National Conference. Please visit http://icerm.brown.edu/mmw2013 for more details.  The full list of upcoming diversity initiative events may be found at: http://www.mathinstitutes.org/diversity.php.



ARCHIMEDES SOCIETY: Annual Fund gifts are recognized through membership in the Archimedes Society.  Archimedes Society members enjoy reserved seating for public events and are invited to special receptions.  Annual Fund gifts support all of MSRI’s activities, including scientific research, K–12 education, and community outreach. Over 3,500 young people participate in our education programs each year and countless others attend our public programs.  For more information and to join the Archimedes Society, please go to https://secure.entango.com/donate/ZbzmT35yJjs

MUSEION: Your generous gift of $5,041 or more is recognized by an invitation to MSRI’s Museion dinner and lecture series.  At Museion, an elegant dinner complements a lecture by an acclaimed expert in the mathematical sciences.  Attendees have a unique opportunity to get to know the speakers during the discussion following the lecture.  For more information about Museion, please visit http://www.msri.org/web/msri/pages/23 or contact Development by emailing development@msri.org.

GAUSS SOCIETY: The Gauss Society honors donors who have chosen to designate MSRI in their Will or Living Trust. Income from contributed endowments will help support MSRI's scientific programs in perpetuity.  Professor Douglas Lind chairs the Gauss Society and host an annual gathering each January to recognize its members.
For more information, please visit http://www.msri.org/web/msri/static-pages/-/node/235 or contact Development by emailing development@msri.org.



MSRI is grateful to those corporations that have supported our education and scientific programs.  Corporate Partners members enjoy a variety of benefits including invitations to special events and listing in MSRI publications.  For more information about the Corporate Partners program, please visit http://www.msri.org/web/msri/support-msri/corporate-sponsors or contact Development by emailing development@msri.org.



Many lectures and special events at MSRI are videotaped and made available via streaming video through MSRI'S VMath web site, see http://www.msri.org/web/msri/online-videos
