Summer Undergraduate Research Experience in Computer Science
Lamar University, Texas

Department Computer Science of Lamar University hosts a National Science Foundation-Research Experience for Undergraduates site. This REU site will host up to ten undergraduate students for the summer of 2010. Our program is open to all undergraduate students from all US institutions who are United States Citizen or a US Permanent Resident.

Our program objective is to increase the number of future professionals in Computer Science and Information Technology from traditionally underrepresented groups (women and minorities). The applicants need to have good knowledge of modern programming (C, C++ or Java) in order to gain maximum benefit of our program which offers summer research experience to reinforce and supplement their future course of study, build their leadership and teamwork skills, and motivate them to go on to pursue graduate degrees.

The program also includes practical research activities related to many areas of Computer Science and Information Technology and the related fields. In addition to the research skills, the participants will also gain expertise in scientific writing, communication skills. The participants, in collaboration with their faculty mentor, must prepare articles for publication in journals or conference proceedings.

It is expected and mandatory that, the accepted applicants be available and willing to participate in the summer program. As once the offer is given and it is accepted, the applicants are obligated to complete the summer internship (all 10 weeks) program and meet the program requirements. This program will provide a $4600 stipend, free on-campus housing and meals, and travel support up to $750 for each accepted participant. The program starts from May 24 to July 31 of 2010. 

Applications must be received by April 10.
