Student Summer Research Fellowship Program
The Student Summer Research Fellowship Program administered under the Computer Science Department aims at recruiting a group of highly motivated undergraduate students from our partner universities* to join the faculty-led research groups and conduct research at UChicago in the summer (July and August).
* At this moment, the program opens to only a few partner universities. Please check with your institution to see if your university is among the partner list.
During the 8-week program period, each student will spend their work time with one faculty member and their research team to conduct research. In addition, the program will organize group-based team building activities, workshops, group projects etc. that will expose students to the larger UChicago academic community.
Data Science Institute Summer Lab
The Data Science Institute Summer Lab program (launched in 2018 as the Data & Computing Summer Lab) is an immersive 10-week paid summer research program at the University of Chicago. In the program, high school, undergraduate, and UChicago Masters students are paired with a data science mentor in various domains, including: computer science, data science, social science, climate and energy policy, public policy, materials science, and biomedical research. Through this pairing the research assistant will engage with and hone their skills in research methodologies, practices, and teamwork. UChicago Masters students specifically, as well as eligible high school and undergraduate students, are paired with projects in the Social Impact Track (more details below). We encourage participation from a broad range of students, and require no prior research experience to apply.
