#101 – Google’s 2020 CS Research Mentorship Program (CSRMP)
We’re writing to share that the application for Google’s 2020 CS Research Mentorship Program (CSRMP) is now open for students to apply. CSRMP aims to attract undergraduate students and retain graduate students from underrepresented groups in computing research pathways by matching them with peers and a Google mentor.
Students in parallel academic stages and research areas are grouped into virtual mentorship pods. Pods work toward a goal shared by each student, supported by the Google mentor through group and one-on-one meetings. Students are invited to virtual career panels, tech talks and information sessions about computing research opportunities from institutions and organizations across the field.
The mentorship cycle runs for twelve weeks during the academic year (January-April 2021) with a minimum time commitment of ten hours per student.
Eligibility: The target audience for CSRMP is students from underrepresented groups who would gain value that they otherwise would not have access to by collaborating with a mentor and peers in computing research. Students must meet the following requirements at the time of application: Active enrollment in an undergraduate or graduate degree-granting program in computer science (or an adjacent field) in the United States or Canada for the full duration of the mentorship cycle Includes community college students and students obtaining a minor in computer science (or an adjacent field)Minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (on a four point scale, or equivalent).
We encourage you to communicate this opportunity to students in your network. Also, if you work with others who may know of student groups that would be interested in taking part, feel free to forward this email along to them.
Full information on CSRMP can be found on our website. If you have any questions, please feel free to reply here directly. Thank you!The CSRMP team

#81 Research Experience for Undergraduates in Applied Computational Robotics at the University of South Carolina Application deadline is March 1. Program Benefits: – A stipend of $500 per week. – On campus housing in apartment-style dormitories. – A meal allowance of $1200. – Travel expenses up to $600. – Professional development and training workshops. – Coordinated social events. An REU is a summer opportunity for undergraduate students to learn about the research process in their field and to conduct their own original research. Students work closely with faculty mentors, graduate students, and other REU participants on cutting edge problems. It’s an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge gained inside the classroom to real-world, unanswered problems, and is an opportunity for students to explore research as a future career. In addition to conducting research, REU participants have the opportunity to receive professional development training that will assist them both in their current research and in their future careers, as well as the opportunity to network with other like-minded undergraduates. The University of South Carolina REU in applied computational robotics is centered around the observation that “robots change everything.” That is, every aspect of a computer system, from the design and engineering of its software, to its interactions with humans, to its core functions of perception and movement, is deeply impacted by the way robots must interact with the physical world. In this 10 week summer program, students will engage in active research rooted in areas such as software engineering, security, and automated reasoning that are often overlooked by the contemporary robotics community, but crucially important for the deployment of reliable, trustworthy robotic systems.

Upon completion, each student receives a “Cyber Resume” and NSA Certificate of Completion. “Challenging our students to think ahead and consider career choices in cybersecurity and related fields ensures they have the solid foundation they need to compete in an increasingly globalized workforce,” said Dr. Salmon. “The ‘Day of Cyber’ Challenge provides an exciting opportunity for Maryland students to become inspired and interested in one of Maryland’s fastest growing fields.” The schools and teachers with the highest student participation in the program will be recognized by the Maryland State Department of Education. The schools with the highest student participation will be based on the number of students who have completed the introductory portion of the NSA Day of Cyber platform and have generated their “Cyber Resume.” More information can be found on the NSA Day of Cyber website, https://www.nsadayofcyber.com/.
