CURIS Undergraduate Research Fellowship
CURIS is the undergraduate research program of Stanford's Computer Science Department. Each summer, 100+ undergraduates conduct and participate in computer science research advised and mentored by faculty and Ph.D. students.
CURIS Fellowships provide guaranteed funding for undergraduates to participate in summer research. A Fellowship student's stipend is paid for by the department. A student awarded a CURIS fellowship is responsible for finding a research project to work on, but does not go through the matching process of standard CURIS participation. Students receiving Fellowships are encouraged to use the CURIS project listings to find interesting projects and reach out to the corresponding faculty and Ph.D. students.
Application Deadline is December 15th, 2021.
