The MSRI Undergraduate Program (MSRI-UP) is a comprehensive Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program aimed at identifying and supporting talented students from currently underrepresented backgrounds interested in careers in the mathematical sciences.
MSRI-UP seeks undergraduate students who are women or currently underrepresented minorities in the mathematical sciences, who have completed two years of university-level mathematics courses. and would like to conduct research in the mathematical sciences.
This six-week summer program takes place at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley, California. Eighteen student participants will learn about a modern mathematical topic and conduct collaborative research, working with a community of mentors and academic peers. Participants will leave with the necessary skills and knowledge to conduct and present collaborative research and apply for graduate studies and fellowships.
The 2021 research topic is Parking Functions: Choose Your Own Adventure. The Research Leader will be Dr. Pamela E. Harris (Williams College). The onsite Director will be Dr. Rebecca Garcia (Sam Houston State University).
