Gallaudet University is the only university in the world where students live and learn using American Sign Language (ASL) and English. It offers a 10-week summer research program for undergraduate students focusing on accessible information and communications technologies. Participants will be immersed in a collaborative community of practice and be mentored by accessible technology faculty researchers on projects focused on accessible technology for the deaf and hard of hearing communities. Lab activities will be supplemented with weekly research training seminars, invited talks, and professional development workshops.
Participating in an undergraduate research project is a great way to learn a lot about a specific area and to try your hand at a cutting-edge research topic. If you are thinking about graduate school, this is also an excellent opportunity to find out what research is about and to get experience before applying.
In this program, students will come together to learn about computing research methodologies, participate in active research, and receive professional development training. As a participant in the REU site, you will receive a stipend, room and board, and travel reimbursement.
