The MSRI-UP is a comprehensive program for undergraduates that aims at increasing the number of students from underrepresented groups in mathematics graduate programs. MSRI-UP includes summer research opportunities, mentoring, workshops on the graduate school application process, and follow-up support.
MSRI-UP 2008: Experimental Mathematics
The MSRI-UP will:
- Train undergraduates in mathematical research through a six-week summer program at MSRI in Berkeley, CA.
- Provide participating students opportunities to present their research at national conferences in the year following the summer program.
- Introduce participating students to a network of mentors through national societies known for their mentoring activities and professional support for students.
- Guide students in the process of applying to graduate programs and fellowships.
Details of the 2008 summer program:
- Eighteen students will participate in research on Experimental Mathematics led by Dr. Victor Moll from the Tulane University, a post-doc and two graduate assistants
- Students who will finish their sophomore or junior year in 2008 are preferred. African American, Latino and Native American students are especially sought
- Each student will receive room and board, a $3,000 summer stipend, transportation to and from Berkeley, and funding to attend a national conference
