1999-2000 Undergraduate Award Nomination Information
CRA Outstanding Undergraduate Awards Deadline October 25, 1999
The Computing Research Association is pleased to announce the sixth annual CRA Undergraduate Award Program, recognizing undergraduate students who show outstanding research potential in an area of computing research.
This year's award program is made possible by the generous support of the Mitsubishi Electric Research Lab.
A cash prize of $1,000 will be awarded to each of two undergraduate student winners, one female and one male, who are majoring in computer science, computer engineering, or an equivalent program. A number of other outstanding candidates will be recognized with Honorable Mention. The awards will be presented at one of the major computing research conferences sponsored by CRA, ACM, the IEEE Computer Society, SIAM, AAAI, or USENIX. The two first-prize winners will receive financial assistance toward their travel to the conference. CRA encourages home departments to provide similar assistance to other students who are recognized.
Please make this award widely known in your department. CRA hopes that your strongest undergraduates will be nominated. The award is a terrific way to recognize your best students and your department.
A nomination package consists of the following items:
*The verification statement signed by the department chair should simply state that the student is in good standing and eligible for the award.
A department may nominate more than one candidate. While it is preferable for nominations to be submitted by the candidate's department chair, it is also possible for them to come from individual faculty members. Nominees must attend a university or college located in the United States or Canada.
The nomination must reach CRA no later than October 25, 1999. Four copies of the complete nomination package are required (one transcript must be an original).
