Research Experience for Undergraduates in Cybersecurity

Guy-Alain Amoussou, PhD; PI, Associate Provost, Division of Academic Academic Affairs & Provost

The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Cybersecurity, a project of the Summer Undergraduate Research Institute (SURI), is a nine-week program where students work collaboratively and engage with faculty members in research teams. Student participants learn how to use the most current cyberinfrastructure tools with individually designed training sessions targeted to their specific degree of preparation. Each student receives a stipend up to $5,400, free housing in university residence halls, and travel expenses to and from Bowie, Maryland. A funding allocation is also available to support each proposed project.

Note that only US citizens or permanent residents are eligible for the National Science Foundation REU program.
