Fully-funded RIPS Program in the United States. The Institute for Pure & Applied Mathematics at the University of California Los Angeles invites applicants to apply for Research in Industrial Programme for Students. The RIPS is an opportunity for talented undergraduates studying math, computer science, and related disciplines to work in teams on real-world research projects proposed by sponsors from industry or the public sector. The program will run for nine weeks. The participating candidates will engage in nine projects in which all of them involve some math, statistics, data, and computing

Fundings/Financial Benefits

The Research in Industrial Projects for Students is a fully-funded program for students. The Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics provides each undergraduate student with a travel allowance and a stipend of $3,500. In addition to that, the program benefits also include the provisions of food and accommodation. The participating students will live in residence halls on the UCLA campus and will work at IPAM.


  • Opportunity to collect research experiences that focus on an academic problem where students work closely with an academic mentor, RIPS students apply their mathematics knowledge to a real-world industrial problem, with an emphasis on problem-solving using whatever methods are appropriate. In this way, RIPS is a cross between an REU and an internship. Second, RIPS students work on teams, with one student serving as the project manager. For many students, this is their first experience working in a team environment.
  • RIPSprovides students with an opportunity to explore careers in mathematics, science, and technology.
  • Platform to learn about the company that is sponsoring their project through interaction with their industrial mentor, and about the other industry sponsors through discussions with other RIPS students about their projects.
  • A platform for students to learn report writing and public presentation skills that will be invaluable to them as they continue with an academic or professional career in an industrial setting.


  • RIPS is a program is open for students who are enrolled in or have just completed an undergraduate (bachelor) degree.
  • The IPAM encourages students with a strong background in mathematics and an interest in seeing the use of Mathematics in the real world.
  • Proficiency in computer science, data analysis or numerical computation is valuable, but not necessary for everyone.
  • International students as well are eligible to apply for RIPS-LA.

The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) is an American mathematics institute funded by the National Science Foundation. IPAM is located on the UCLA campus, in close proximity to UCLA’s Department of Mathematics.
