The NSF has set up the REU program in order to involve students in meaningful
ways in ongoing research programs so as to attract talented students into
careers in science and engineering.
The full title of this program is REU Site: Scientific Computing for
Structure in Big or Complex Datasets and it is NSF grant CNS-1659144.
The REU program is described in program solicitation NSF 13-542,
Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU).
