Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU): Summer School on Mathematical Foundation of Data Science 2022 is supported by the NSF RTG grant at the University of South Carolina. It will be virtual and will run from June 6 to July 15, 2022.
We plan to accept about 20 undergraduate students for this program. The students who are US citizens are eligible to receive a stipend of up to $3000 by the last day of the summer school.
The deadline for applications is now extended to May 8, 2022. Please, apply early and make sure that the faculty who will write a one-page letter of support is ready to submit it immediately upon request. The applicants will receive an e-mail notification whether they are accepted to the program by May 15, 2022.
Update: Applications are closed.
Program: In the first two weeks, we teach four short course modules in Mathematical Foundation of Data Science to prepare undergraduate students for the basic level of research projects. Starting from the third week, students will be divided into four groups to work on research projects. Some guest speakers are invited to give talks on the latest development in the Mathematical Foundation of Data Science. On the last day of the program, students will present their research findings.
Here is the full program.
