CRA Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award

The Program: The CRA Undergraduate Research Awards (“URA”) program recognizes undergraduate students in North American colleges and universities who show outstanding potential in an area of computing research. While it is expected that successful nominees will have excellent academic records and will have engaged in some form of service (e.g., club leadership, teaching, peer tutoring), excellence in research is the primary consideration.

Awards: Up to 4 Undergraduate Researcher Awards will be made each year. Each award recipient will receive financial assistance of up to $1,500 to attend a research conference of their choice. In addition, some nominees will be designated as runners-up, finalists, and honorable mentions. Award recipients, runners-up, finalists, and honorable mentions will be announced on our website and directly contacted by e-mail in mid-December. These students will also receive certificates of their awards via mail.
Required Materials:
 A resume (up to two pages)
A summary of research (up to 750 words)
A personal statement (up to 300 words)
Academic Transcript(s)
Letter of Recommendation from a faculty member (3-page maximum)
