Abstract:

The goal of the internship program was to give socioeconimically disadvantaged undergraduate students an introduction to what graduate study in Computer Science is like and to encourage them to consider graduate education. A further goal was to build stronger relationships with local and national four-year HBCUs Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We also recruited students from HBCUs nationwide and worked in conjunction with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, which has a similar intern program, funded by the National Science Foundation. We worked very closely with local HBCU faculty to provide an internship program that was rewarding, challenging, enjoyable, and closely mentored.
