Graduate-Level Research in Industrial Projects for Students (G-RIPS) in Japan will offer graduate students in mathematics and related disciplines the opportunity to work on industry-sponsored research problems in Sendai, Japan.


Students from the U.S. and Japan will work on cross-cultural teams on research problems designed by industrial sponsors. The projects will be of serious interest to the sponsor and will offer a stimulating challenge to students; most will involve both analytic and computational work. At the end of the program, the teams will present the results of their work and prepare a final report. IPAM will encourage the U.S. students to publish and/or present their research at conferences in the year following the program. English is the only language required for participation.


Eligible applicants include graduate students in math or a related discipline, with a preference given to students in their second or third year of a PhD program. IPAM will only accept applications from U.S. citizens and permanent residents; Japanese students are encouraged to contact Tohoku University for information and an application.
