Summer Undergraduate Research in Paris

The Mathematics Departments at Columbia University and Université Paris Cité run a six-week intensive summer research program in Paris, 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. Program information and applications instructions are included below.

Applications for the 2022 CMUSRP are now closed.

Application link: https://forms.gle/zESbQJhfKRbJisXi9 

For your application, you will need:
– One-page CV/resume
– One-page about your research interests and motivation for participation
– Unofficial university transcripts
– A reference letter from a faculty member (to be emailed directly by the referee to dragomir@math.columbia.edu before the application deadline).

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”.
