MS Math at CSU Channel Islands

Masters of Science in Mathematics

The program is the result of collaboration of mathematics, computer science, and physics
faculty and is designed to address the global need for people with advanced mathematical,
analytical, and computational skills. Students are provided with a strong background in
mathematics and its applications as well as skills necessary to conduct independent
research. The program incorporates interdisciplinary applications such as bioinformatics,
actuarial sciences, cryptography, security, image recognition, artificial intelligence,
mathematics education, and the philosophy of mathematics. Students’ specializations
depend on the electives chosen and on the final thesis/project conducted under the
supervision of an advisor/mentor. An individual study plan can be designed to meet entry
requirements for Ph.D. programs in mathematics or the mathematical sciences. For more information, see the flier below

Applications Invited for Sigma Xi Student Science Research Grants

Sigma Xi, a society of research scientists and engineers that rewards excellence in research and cooperation among scientists in all fields, has been providing undergraduate and graduate students with valuable educational experiences and financial support for more than eighty years. By encouraging close working relationships between students and faculty, the society promotes scientific achievement through hands-on learning.

Through its Sigma Xi Grants-in-Aid of Research program, the society awards grants of up to $1,000 to students from any  science or engineering discipline. In addition, designated funds from the National Academy of Sciences allow for grants of up to $5,000 for astronomy research and $2,500 for vision-related research. Funding can support travel expenses or nonstandard laboratory equipment necessary to complete a specific research project.

While membership in Sigma Xi is not required for an applicant to receive funding, approximately 75 percent of the Grants-in-Aid of Research funds are restricted for use by dues-paying student members or students whose project advisor is a dues-paying member. Students from any country are eligible to receive funding.

Complete program guidelines and application instructions are available on the Sigma Xi Web site.

Application Deadlines: March 15 and October 15 annually

Amgen Scholars Program Research Program

Undergraduate Summer Research Program in Science and Biotechnology

The Amgen Scholars U.S. Program provides hundreds of selected undergraduate students with the opportunity to engage in a hands-on research experience at some
of the nation’s leading educational institutions. Currently, 10 universities in the U.S. host the summer research program. The Amgen Foundation has committed
$34 million over eight years to this global initiative to make this opportunity possible to more than 2,400 students.
Eligibility requirements, as well as site-specific programming information, is available on the Amgen Scholars website as well as the attached Amgen Scholars US Program Flyer.

Application Deadline for Summer 2014 is February 3

Each host university has its own application process. You can apply to participate at as many host universities as you are interested in. The application at each host university requires, at a minimum, the submission of an official transcript, a letter of recommendation, and a personal statement or essay.

To apply to be an Amgen Scholar, students can go to the Host Universities Page of the Amgen Scholars website and click on the host university they are interested in. After reading about the Program at that particular host university, students can follow the link to that university’s summer research program website and find the Amgen Scholars application for that host university on their page.
