If you’re curious about what it’s like to participate in research or if you would like to find out what it might feel like to be in graduate school, you’re strongly encouraged to engage in research as an undergraduate. Many students report that their undergraduate research was among the most meaningful experiences in their undergraduate years. There are several computing research awards available to students who have done exceptionally good research as undergraduates. Some awards come with cash prizes, and all come with fame and glory for you, your research adviser, and your institution.
Some of these awards are:
- The Computing Research Association (CRA) Undergraduate Research Award
- The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Student Research Competition
