The MSRI Undergraduate Program (MSRI--UP) is a comprehensive summer program designed for undergraduate students who have completed 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.

General Description

During the summer, each of the 18 student participants will:

  • participate in the mathematics research program under the direction of Dr. Anne Shiu of Texas A&M University, a post-doc and two graduate students;
  • complete a research project done in collaboration with other MSRI-UP 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;
  • learn techniques that will maximize a student's likelihood of admissions to graduate programs as well as the likelihood of winning fellowships; and
  • receive a $3600 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; and
  • be contacted regarding future research opportunities.

How to Apply

Applications for MSRI-UP will be on the National Science Foundation's Education and Training Application site in November of 2022.
