After two weeks of intensive introduction to a selection of open problems and problem areas, participants will break into groups working on problems in different areas. Participants will be asked to make short presentations, in daily seminars and problem sessions, of background literature and of progress made, or of obstacles encountered. At the end of the program each group will be asked to prepare a written summary and an oral presentation of the summer’s endeavors. Participants will receive a stipend of $3,600 and will live on campus with housing paid. Travel and food are left to the participants’ devices.

Stony Brook University – AGEP (Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate)
8-week program designed to provide a wide range of services to underrepresented minority doctoral students in the STEM fields as well as to the STEM departments and graduate programs.
Rice University – Rice University Summer Institute of Statistics Research Program for Undergraduates (RUSIS)
The goal of this 10-week program is to prepare undergraduate students for a graduate research career in Statistical Sciences. Participants start with courses in Computation and Probability, Stochastic Processes and Statistical Inference. Students will then being group work, assisted by the faculty, on statistical problems with applications on Extreme Value theory, Multiple Comparisons, Multivariate Survival Analysis, and other biomedical and statistical problems. Research results will be presented at a National meeting and when the work merits it, publication in a professional journal. Travel, housing, and stipend provided.
U.S. Department of Energy – Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships
10- or 16-week internship program for students who have decided on a career in science and engineering. Students work with scientists or engineers on projects related to the laboratories’ research programs.
University of South Carolina – Computing and Engineering
The program gives participants the opportunity to conduct research in security and/or software engineering using state-of-the-art computational facilities under the direction of faculty mentors and participate in industry visits and other special events. The experience will help participants learn to work in a multidisciplinary setting while developing professional research skills.
