Students often cite the importance of an individual faculty mentor whose support influenced their educational and career path. Data show that research experiences for undergraduates (REUs) can make a difference in students’ lives and provide a pathway to graduate degrees and research careers. REUs can be particularly important for women – who earn only 18% of all bachelor’s degrees in computing – since they provide opportunities for personalized student-faculty interaction, a strong predictor of student retention.
The Undergraduate Research Mentoring Award accepts nominations for faculty from all non-profit, U.S. Academic Alliance member institutions (a school may become a member after one of its faculty is nominated.) We are pleased to announce AT&T is again sponsoring this award and the institution where the school resides will receive a $5,000 gift that the winner can use for their research.
