Cracking the Diversity Code: Undergraduate Research Fellow Application 2021

April 14 @ 8:00 am - May 14 @ 5:00 pm UTC-7

Cracking the Diversity Code is a study, led by Dr. Monique Ross, designed to further understand how Black and Hispanic women encounter, decide to pursue, and their experiences within the field of computer science. This research experience will take place from August 2nd to August 13th 2021.

We are currently recruiting undergraduate research fellows for a multi-year paid research undertaking. These fellows will assist in data collection and analysis in our target audience of Black and Hispanic women in computer science degree programs at all levels (freshman – senior).

The commitment at this time is described below:

1) Participants will attend a paid two-week program virtually through Florida International University in order to establish a community of practice during the summer. During this time, participants will undergo intensive education research learning modules.

2) After the REU, participants will be asked to attend monthly virtual meetings in order to remain connected and provide and receive mentorship (traditional and peer).

3) During the lifetime of the project, these participants will act as ambassadors for the project and will help recruit other women to participate in the study. Participants will learn how to engage in computer science education research and have opportunities for professional development and other research related activities
