Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) are being offered throughout the U.S. for Summer 2019. See this list of REUs in Computer and Information Science and Engineering. If your application to one of these is accepted, all expenses are generally paid, plus a stipend of a few thousand dollars is typically given.

CMU is offering a summer REU (research experience for undergraduates). Spend the summer working with some of the leading software engineering faculty reearchers. They are especially interested in recruiting undergrads traditionally underrepresented in computer science, and first- and second-year students. See https://www.isri.cmu.edu/education/reu-se/ for more information.


Students currently in their junior year of college (from any major) are eligible to apply to two distinct paid summer fellowships hosted by CMU’s Heinz College:


Each program is a 7-week in-residence experience and features:

  • Specialized courses taught by CMU faculty: Fellows earn CMU academic credit for coursework (eligible for transfer to home institution)
  • $1,000 stipend + the costs of housing, meals, books, supplies, social functions, and travel expenses to and from Pittsburgh
  • A scholarship of at least 50% of graduate school tuition, if admitted to and enroll in a masters program at Heinz College.
