The National Science Foundation (NSF) Mathematical Sciences Graduate Internship (MSGI) Program provides opportunities for mathematical sciences doctoral students to participate in internships at federal national laboratories and research facilities.
What will I be doing?
You will spend your time learning the application of advanced mathematical and statistical techniques to "real world" problems, regardless of whether you plan to pursue an academic or nonacademic career. Internship activities will vary based on the assigned project and hosting facility. As part of your application, you will identify your top 3 projects from the 2020 NSF MSGI Project Catalog. You can review the catalog here: https://public.orau.org/sawd/nsf-msgi/SitePages/NSFCatalogView.aspx. Additional projects may be added to the catalog on an ongoing basis until November 30, 2019.
All projects are in disciplinary areas of the mathematical sciences supported by the NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences: Algebra and Number Theory, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Combinatorics, Computational Mathematics, Foundations, Geometric Analysis, Mathematical Biology, Probability, Statistics, and Topology. Applicants are encouraged to review the information about DMS research areas at https://www.nsf.gov/funding/programs.jsp?org=DMS.
How long is the internship? Where will I be?
Internship appointments are for 10 consecutive weeks on site at the assigned hosting facility between the months of May and September. For a list of hosting facilities, please visit: https://orise.orau.gov/nsf-msgi/.
