The University of Texas RGV Computer Science is proud to partner with Google Research to offer exploreCSR for a rich research experience for undergraduate students. We encourage students from historically-underrepresented groups to apply, including but not limited to -- Hispanic, women, students of color, first-generation college students, students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, and LGBTQ+ students. Our goal is to expose students to all aspects of computing research from faculty from different universities, gain their confidence to pursue graduate studies, develop practical skills, and achieve a sense of belonging in computing research.
Multiple projects are available, including literature reviews, replications of prior work, improvements of existing research projects, or new independent research projects. The internship participants will present their work in posters at the end of July, 2021 and may extend to write and publish those into short papers.
Students who participate in the program will be mentored by one of the following CS faculty members from different universities:
Throughout the workshop and summer of 2021, participants will pursue their own research projects under the guidance of their faculty.
