Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

The Center for Sustainable Polymers (CSP) is a NSF funded Center for During the summer, each of the 18 student participants will:

-participate in the mathematics research program under the direction faculty and graduate student mentors.

-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 and

-learn techniques that will maximize a student's likelihood of admissions to graduate programs as well as the likelihood of winning fellowships

-receive a $3100 stipend, lodging, meals and roundtrip 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

-be contacted regarding future research opportunities

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.
