REU Site in Computational Statistics


Selected participants will get the following support, with the possibility of small changes in housing and meal allowance:

  1. A stipend of $600 USD per week for 10 weeks, for a total stipend of 6,000 USD.
  2. Travel support of $1,100 USD per student. This would include funds for travel to regional or national meetings to present their results during the academic year following their REU participation. These monies will be available on a competitive basis, and those students with the most promising results, and without other funding, will be supported.
  3. Students will receive a 600 USD meal allowance + 2,240 housing costs (32/night x 70 nights) + 300 for working meals = 3,140 USD. Participants may use meal money to eat at on-campus dining halls, off-campus venues, or to purchase groceries. Housing is provided at competitive rates in university-owned fully furnished apartments on campus dormitories in single rooms with a shared lobby and fully furnished kitchen, where participants will have easy access to classrooms, libraries, laboratories, dining halls, and other campus facilities. Two working (common) meals are planned each week (one lunch, one supper) at an estimated cost of 30 USD per student per week.
