Mathematical Sciences Graduate Internship (MSGI) Program

Deadline Date: 02/01/2018

Agency: National Science Foundation (NSF)

Scope: The National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) aims to provide opportunities to enrich the training of graduate students in the Mathematical Sciences through the provision of an NSF DMS summer research internship program. The internships are aimed at students who are interested in understanding the application of advanced mathematical and statistical techniques to "real world" problems, regardless of whether the student plans to pursue an academic or nonacademic career. Applicants will select their primary and secondary area of interest from the following list of disciplinary areas of the mathematical sciences supported by the NSF Division of Mathematical Science; Algebra and Number Theory  Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Probability,  Foundations, Computational Mathematics Geometric Analysis,  Mathematical Biology, Statistics and Topology Applicants are encouraged to review research areas at: Appointment Internship appointments are 10 consecutive weeks on site at the assigned hosting facility between the months of April and September. Applicants may propose up to three domestically based facilities offering an internship for doctoral students in the Mathematical Sciences. Facilities may include federal national laboratories and other non-university research facilities in industry, non-profit organizations, and government. Participant Benefits: A stipend of $1,200 per week will be paid during the 10-week internship period. Transportation expenses for round trip travel costs up to $2,000 between the participant's U.S. residence and the assigned internship location will be provided. Conditions of the Internship; U.S. citizenship is not required for participation in the program. However, depending on the internship assignment, U.S. citizenship, permanent residence, J1 visa, or F1 visa may be required. For non-U.S. citizens, internships are contingent upon having a valid immigration status. ORISE will work with participants to determine eligibility. Participants are required to provide proof of health insurance coverage prior to the start of the internship.
