Applicants should be undergraduates with a major in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a closely related field. They should be current juniors (graduating in the academic year following the REU), although sophomores with exceptionally strong backgrounds as well as seniors will be considered. Due to funding agency rules, only U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents are eligible to receive stipends and support for housing and travel costs under the DIMACS, DIMACS/DIMATIA, and Mathematics programs; however, foreign students enrolled at a U.S. university are eligible under the CCICADA program. Women, minorities, and students with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
