2020 NSF Math Sciences Graduate Internship

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 you be doing?

The NSF Mathematical Sciences Graduate Internship (MSGI) program is aimed at students who are interested in understanding 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. Additional projects may be added to the catalog on an ongoing basis.

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
  • Topology

Applicants are encouraged to review the information about DMS research areas.

You must meet the following to be eligible for an internship:

  • Be enrolled as a full-time graduate student during the 2019-2020 academic year at an accredited U.S. college pursuing a doctoral degree in mathematics, statistics or applied mathematics.
  • Have a cumulative graduate GPA of 3.00 or higher on a 4.00 scale at the time of application.

If you have questions, please email NSF-MSGI@ORISE.ORAU.GOV. Please list the reference code [NSF-2020-NSF-MSGI] for this opportunity in the subject line of your email.
