The Computing Research Association’s Education Committee (CRA-E) is excited to announce a new and improved version of its Conquer website (conquer.cra.org/cra) for CS undergraduates interested in research and graduate school. The site also has resources for faculty who are interested in mentoring undergraduate research and helping their students apply to graduate school.
The many valuable resources on the Conquer site include:
- Material for students on getting into research as an undergraduate, what graduate school is all about and how to apply, and frequently asked questions about the process.
- Resources for faculty on best practices in mentoring undergraduates in research, funding opportunities for involving undergraduates in research, and resources for advising students on careers in research and applying to graduate school.
Please share this site with your students and colleagues and consider adding this to the resources on your department’s website.
