CS Summer Research Assistant Awards
|The University of Wisconsin - Madison Computer Sciences Department annually awards several summer Research Assistantships. These awards provide two months of summer support to outstanding students who are undergraduates or first year graduate students during the preceding academic year. |
The principal criteria for RA selection are academic excellence and the quality of the expected outcomes of the proposed research project. Students who receive the award are advised by the nominating faculty member during the summer and give a 30-minute presentation on their results in a special seminar during the Fall semester.
Students are encouraged to contact Computer Sciences professors with whom they might want to work to discuss possible topics. For graduate students, it is expected that the nominating professor will contribute one half of the funding for the 2-month RAship.RAship Sponsors
CS summer RAships are funded by Department discretionary funds that are available due to the generosity of our Industrial Affiliates.
