Collaborative Research Experiences for Undergraduates (CREU)
Application Deadline: May 1st, 2009
Sponsored by CRA's Committee on the Status of Women in Computing
Research (CRA-W) and the Coalition to Diversify Computing (CDC), the
CREU program is aimed toward increasing the number of women and
underrepresented minorities who go on to CS&E graduate programs.
Students have the opportunity to conduct undergraduate research with a
small team (2-4 students) at their home institution during the academic
year and optionally the following summer. Formerly administered as two
separate programs – CREU and MRO-W – the program includes not only
computer science and computer engineering research, but may also include
multidisciplinary research. Students receive a $3,000 stipend for their
work in the academic year and $4,000 for the optional summer extension.
Each team can also request an extra $1,500 to be used for supporting
materials and activities.
