Students interested in summer research can apply to REUs (Research Experiences for Undergraduates).
The REU program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in computer science. This research is funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program.
REU programs consist of a group of undergraduate students who work in the research programs of a host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students in this program are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel.
Students can consult the REU directory for available REU programs as early as November.
Apply directly to individual REU programs. Most REU application deadlines are end of January or February.
