UR2PhD National Virtual Computing Research Mentor Program @ BU

BU CS is proud to be one of five inaugural institutional partners selected by the Computing Research Association (CRA) to participate in the new UR2PhD National Virtual Computing Research Mentor Program. While all students are welcome to participate, the mission of the program is to “expand the number of research opportunities for women and gender-marginalized undergraduates, including those from marginalized races and ethnicities.”

Below is some helpful information about the program for BU Undergraduates, Grad Students, and Faculty. For full details about the program, please visit the CRA’s UR2PhD website.

Under “Computer Science”, look for “UR2PhD” in the project name!

Calling All Computer Science Major Undergrads, No Experience Necessary!

For fall 2023, we are looking for BU undergraduate students majoring in Computer Science who are interested in working on a computing research project in teams of 2+ undergrads, supervised by faculty members in the CS department. Students will earn four credits that count as an elective towards the CS major.

Students will be expected to commit to ten research hours per week, and to participate in a synchronous online course on research methods. The class will meet once per week in a two hour session.

See the CRA’s UR2PhD website for more information.
