 REU Site: Human-Centered Computing for Social Good

The University of Minnesota offers a 10-week summer REU program for
undergraduate students focusing on human-centered computing for social
good. Participants will be immersed in a collaborative community of
practice at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and mentored
by faculty researchers in the areas of virtual reality, social and embodied
computing, and human-robot interaction. To frame the societal relevance of
their research, students will work on a project that addresses at least one
United Nations Sustainable Development Goal. Lab activities will be
supplemented with weekly research training seminars, invited talks, and
professional development workshops.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are planning to host the summer 2021
program as a virtual REU site. Participants will receive a stipend of
$6,000 paid in installments throughout the summer. Because we cannot
provide on-campus housing, students will also receive an additional payment
of $3,588 to cover living expenses. We will do our best to accommodate
students' technology needs to support their remote participation in the

Students that identify as members of underrepresented groups,
first-generation college students, and students from institutions with
limited research access (e.g., liberal arts or community colleges) are
especially encouraged to apply!

More information and application instructions can be found at:

Review of applications will begin on March 8 (extended).  However, we will
continue to accept new applications and recommendation letters on an
ongoing basis until the program is full.  Students are therefore encouraged
to apply even after this date.
