Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

The TRUST REU is a nine-week summer program in Cybersecurity, Privacy and Trustworthy Systems, established to promote access to graduate education among undergraduates who have been educationally or economically disadvantaged and who may not have exposure to the academic environment of a research university.

The goal of the TRUST REU program is to increase the level of diversity among students entering graduate programs in computer science and engineering by providing research opportunities under the supervision of a faculty member and graduate student mentor. Program objectives are:

To provide students with preparation to become research scholars

To stimulate serious consideration of graduate study

To increase the number of successful underserved applicants able to enroll in graduate school

Program benefits include:

Approximately 9-10 weeks of research

A research stipend of $4500

A round-trip travel stipend up to $600

A double room in a residential hall

A subsidized GRE preparation course

Special consideration will be given to applicants who have shown potential for success, but may have had limited access to undergraduate research or other academic opportunities. Upon completion of this program students will be better prepared and motivated to apply for graduate school admission.
