MSRI's Summer Research in Mathematics program provides space, funding, and the opportunity for in-person collaboration to small groups of mathematicians, especially women and gender-expansive individuals, whose ongoing research may have been disproportionately affected by various obstacles including family obligations, professional isolation, or access to funding. Through this effort, MSRI aims to mitigate the obstacles faced by these groups, improve the odds of research project completion, and deepen their research experience. The ultimate goal of this program is to enhance the mathematical sciences as a whole by positively affecting the research and careers of all of its participants and assisting their efforts to maintain involvement in the research community.
Graduate students are invited to submit proposals for reimbursement of up to $250 for qualifying trainings, resources, and activities that contribute to professional skills development and that complement the degree program but are not normally available or required as a part of it.
Located on the sixth floor of the Valley Library, the Grad Commons supports student success by providing independent, collaborative and facilitated learning experiences. These experiences will help students with timely degree completion, prepare them with the collaborative skills needed for the contemporary workplace, and enhance their contributions to Oregon State’s scholarly enterprise.
Four internships are available for students, that are part of the ONAMI Graduate Internships in Startups program. The internships are with Energy Storage Systems, Liquid Wire, Abom and Onboard Dynamics. The ONAMI Graduate Internships are open to graduate students who are currently working with ONAMI Member Researchers, or who have completed their MS or PhD within the last year.
The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation seeks to support fundamental research that addresses issues of rules, norms and governance of the internet and digital platforms. Recent research, policy debates and public controversies have highlighted the absence of uniform consensus on the norms, rights and responsibilities that should govern digital services, in particular social media. We wish to fund scholarly inquiry and novel approaches that will strengthen our democracy as the digital age progresses. We seek to support efforts that advance research – both theoretical and empirical – on topics related to governance and the rights and responsibilities of individuals, commercial interests, non-governmental organizations and government in the digital era.
The National Geographic Society needs journalists, photographers, filmmakers, cartographers, data visualizers, and socially-connected storytellers who can show us what we might lose if tropical rainforests are not protected and highlight potential solutions that have the power to create real, sustainable improvements.

The AAAS Leadership Seminar in Science and Technology Policy is a "crash course" in science and technology (S&T) policy, designed for those who need to know how S&T policy works. It is modeled after the highly acclaimed orientation program that AAAS provides for its new S&T Policy Fellows, but distills the key material into 5 days instead of two weeks. Space is limited to only 30 to 35 participants--the small group setting provides an ideal opportunity to learn about the challenges and solutions of S&T policy from the experts. Join AAAS to learn firsthand from key people in S&T policy, in settings ranging from Capitol Hill to White House staff offices.
