AccessComputing has funding for Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs). Through an REU experience, students are directly involved in computing research in a university. This allows students who are considering graduate school to learn more about the research process and makes them more competitive applicants for graduate school.
The AccessComputing REU program places computing students with disabilities in computing research projects at colleges and universities. Most often, we work with students to locate research opportunities in their own communities.
Students also enroll in the Distributed Research Experiences for Undergraduates (DREU) program to participate in professional development activities throughout the summer. Students are paid a stipend. Funding for housing and/or travel expenses may be available for students placed in REUs at universities other than their home institution.
