Many deadlines for research programs at other universities occur during Winter Quarter.

  • IPAM "RIPS":  Research in Industrial Projects for Students
    • The Institute for Pure and Applied Math (IPAM), which is located on UCLA’s campus, typically hosts several industry-oriented REU programs.
  • DIMACS REU: Research Experience for Undergraduates
  • REU: Research Experience for Undergraduates
  • DRP: Directed Reading Program in Mathematics
    • UCLA graduate students in mathematics recently started a ddirected reading program, which pairs undergraduate students with graduate students to study a topic that is not typically covered in the undergraduate curriculum. While the DRP is not research based, it helps develop skills necesssary to do research, such as reading and learning more advanced mathematics independently. Find more information here: https://www.math.ucla.edu/~drp/.
  • NSF (National Science Foundation) REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates)
  • URC: Undergraduate Research Center
  • Reaching out to Professors
    • You can also reach out to professors, especially those with whom you have taken classes about potential research opportunities. The Undergraduate Research Center has advice on how to do so http://sciences.ugresearch.ucla.edu/getting-started/project/. Honors classes are also likely to be smaller and taught by full professors, so these are good choices if you are interested in getting involved with research in a specific area.
