Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) 2024 – Singapore

May 20 - July 19, 2024


In collaboration with the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS) at the National University of Singapore (NUS), IPAM recruits U.S. students to work on cross-cultural teams with students from NUS and other Asian universities on four projects, each sponsored by a company based in the region. The program dates will be May 20, 2024 to July 19, 2024.

Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for RIPS-Singapore. English is the only language required for participation. The local students, academic mentors and industry mentors will speak English.

Students in Singapore: please check the IMS site to for information and the application for local participants:

  • Stipend

  • Limited partial support for future travel to select conferences
  • Graduating seniors are eligible

The IMS will provide technical support and offices, and offer some cultural activities. We expect to have four projects. Projects vary, but all involve some math, statistics, data, and computing. The Institute for Mathematical Sciences is in the center of the campus of the National University of Singapore (NUS). NUS is in the centrally located in Singapore with great access to public transportation.

RIPS Singapore is the international version of our RIPS Los Angeles program. You can learn more about the program at the RIPS-LA page and RIPS video. The application is the same for both programs.

IPAM is committed to equity and diversity in the mathematical sciences. We strongly encourage members of traditionally underrepresented groups including women to apply.
