Cybersecurity Scholars Program To Be Offered This Summer

A new Cybersecurity Scholars Program will be offered this summer at the University of Maryland. This research experience for undergraduates will offer students the opportunity to participate in teams that will conduct research for nine weeks during the summer. Each team consists of one Graduate Fellow, one Faculty Mentor, and up to four Scholars. The Scholars will be trained in team skills, project organization, and research competencies.

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

Cybersecurity REU is open to students majoring in engineering, computer science, physical science, or mathematics at any US college or university. Each Scholar receives a $4,500 stipend plus allowance for meals while on-campus.

CS 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 http://www.wie.umd.edu/undergrad/reucomps.html.
