Description 
REUMass is a 10-week data science summer research program for undergraduates. Students will have the opportunity to conduct research projects in multiple areas relevant to data science including applications (computational social science), data analytics (machine learning), and computational infrastructure for data science (databases).
Qualifications 
NSF requires that all student participants be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. No exceptions can be made. Undergraduates who have taken computer science courses and will be entering their junior or senior year in Sept. 2017 are eligible to apply. We particularly encourage students with community college experience, either those in the process of transferring from a community college to a 4-year institution or those who are already at a 4-year institution but were previously enrolled at a community college.
