UCLA – 2018 Research in Industrial Projects for Students

2018 RIPS 2018 Flyer-16uyta6

Dear Professor, Advisor, Faculty or Staff,
The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) runs a unique summer program for undergraduate students. The Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) provides an opportunity for exceptional students in math and related disciplines to work in teams on real world research projects proposed by a sponsor from industry or a national lab. Sponsors have included Google, Symantec, Los Alamos National Lab, the Aerospace Corporation, Los Angeles Police Department, Arete, IBM, and many others. The RIPS web site at gives the full details including a link to the online application. We encourage all bright, young students to apply, especially women and minorities.

This is an educational and very exciting two month program near the heart of Los Angeles at one of the premiere educational institutions in the United States. If accepted the program covers the student’s travel, housing and most meals, and offers a generous stipend. Students immerse themselves in research and learn how to deal with real world problems.

In addition to RIPS in Los Angeles, IPAM will offer RIPS-Hong Kong in 2018 in partnership with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. This is an exciting opportunity for U.S. undergrads to work with students from Hong Kong / China on projects sponsored by companies based in the region. English is the only language required for participation. The format is the same as RIPS-LA; two American and two Chinese students will form a team.

The deadline for applications is February 12, 2018. Please refer your students to the site and encourage them to apply. (Note: graduating seniors are eligible for all programs; international students may apply for RIPS-LA only).

I have attached a PDF poster with this email. If you’d like to request copies of this poster or for more information on RIPS, please email or call me at 310-825-4755.

Best regards,
Dimi Mavalski
