Apply for Summer Cybersecurity Program

A new undergraduate summer program on cybersecurity will be offered this summer at the University of Maryland.

In this Cybersecurity Research Experience for Undergraduates, teams will conduct research for nine weeks. Each team will consists of one graduate fellow, one faculty mentor, and up to four undergraduate scholars. The scholars will be trained in team skills, project organization and research competencies.

Students will increase their research and professional competence, engage in computer security research, and enhance their portfolio and resume. They also will collaborate with faculty, research professionals, and older students while building networks with women and minority mentors and peers.

The program is open to students majoring in engineering, computer science, physical science, or mathematics at any U.S. college or university. Each scholar receives a $4,500 stipend plus allowance for meals while on-campus.

Scholars are selected based on academic achievement, capacity to participate in a research team, the fit between the student's research projects, skills, and interests, commitment to supporting women in science fields, interest in peer mentorship, and interest in continuing studies in graduate or professional school.

This program is sponsored by the National Science Foundations and the A. James Clark School of Engineering. The effort is being led by Prof. Michel Cukier.

The application deadline is March 15th, 2011. Find more information at www.wie.umd.edu/undergrad/reucomps.html.
