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.
The CREU program includes not only computer science and computer engineering research, but also collaborative, multidisciplinary research with a significant computer science emphasis. Students have the opportunity to conduct undergraduate research at their home institution during the academic year. Each student from an underrepresented group receives a stipend.
Teams can also request travel funding to present their work at conferences or meetings. In some cases, projects may be granted funding to continue in the summer following the academic year of research.
