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?
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 research project and hosting facility. As part of your application, you will identify your top 3 research projects from the 2021 NSF MSGI Project Catalog. You can review the catalog here: ***https://orise.orau.gov/nsf-msgi/project-catalog.html***
All research projects are in disciplinary areas of the mathematical sciences supported by the NSF Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS).
Applicants are encouraged to review the information about DMS research areas at https://www.nsf.gov/funding/programs.jsp?org=DMS. DMS seeks to have equal representation across the mathematical sciences community by achieving roughly an equal number of placements in the 3 areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics.
How long is the internship?
Internship appointments are for 10 consecutive weeks on site at the assigned hosting facility between the months of May and September.
Where will I be located?
You will be located at a DOE or other federal national laboratory. Your exact location is dependent on the assigned project and hosting facility. For a list of hosting facilities, please visit: https://orise.orau.gov/nsf-msgi/.
In response to the evolving situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic, hosting facilities may modify their operation schedule and access to facilities to ensure the health and safety of their entire workforce while maintaining operational effectiveness. Hence, the appointment date and location are subject to change contingent on hosting facility guidelines and may result in a virtual placement.
Nature of Appointment
Participants will not enter into an employee/employer relationship with ORISE, ORAU, DOE, NSF or any other office or agency. Participants will be affiliated with ORISE for the administration of the appointment through the ORISE letter of appointment and Terms of Appointment.
You must meet the following to be eligible for an internship:
The NSF MSGI program encourages applications from underrepresented groups, including women, minorities, persons with disabilities, and veterans, in order to broaden and diversify those participating in mathematical sciences.
