Summer Undergraduate Research in Paris

The Mathematics Departments at Columbia University and Université Paris Cité run an intensive summer research program aimed at rising senior undergraduate math (and closely related) majors. Columbia students participating in the program work together with M1/M2 students at Université Paris Cité under the supervision of a faculty member from Paris and a graduate student mentor from Columbia. The 2023 program will run for two weeks at Columbia and four weeks in Paris, France. Program information and applications instructions are included below.

Applications for the 2023 CMUSRP will open in late January/early February.

Collection of Self-Identification Data: The Department of Mathematics is acting on the evidence that diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strengthen the scientific communities and the quality, social relevance, and impact of research.

Self-identification data provides information on the diversity of the student population applying for and receiving summer research funds. This data is important for monitoring the fairness of our summer program and informing future measures to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion among all those involved in the research enterprise. Completing the new self-identification form is mandatory for applicants but for each category there is an option “I prefer not to answer”.
