Are you an undergraduate student from an underrepresented group interested in exploring research in computer science?
Or are you are a faculty member interested in being a research mentor?
Distributed Research Experiences for Undergraduates (DREU) might be the program for you!
DREU interns have the opportunity to be directly involved in a research project and interact with graduate students and professors on a daily basis. This experience is invaluable for those who are considering graduate school; DREU will provide a close-up view of what graduate school is really like and increase interns’ competitiveness as an applicant for graduate admissions and fellowships.
Students may identify potential mentors they wish to work with in their application, although this is not a requirement. In addition, students may indicate a preference regarding the gender and/or the ethnicity of their mentor. However, students are not paired with professors at their home institution.
Faculty may indicate students they particularly wish to work although they may not select students in their home institutes.
The DREU application is currently open for Students and Mentors, but will close on March 1st 2016 at 11:59pm ET!
