The Computing Research Association is pleased to announce the fourth annual CRA Undergraduate Award program, recognizing undergraduate students who show exceptional promise in an area of computing research. The 1997-98 award is made possible by the generous support of Microsoft.
A cash prize of $1,000 will be awarded to each of two undergraduate students, one female and one male, who are majoring in computer science, computer engineering or an equivalent program. 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 or AAAI. 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.
Because this is a relatively new award, many faculty and students have not yet heard about it. We encourage you to make it widely known in your department. The award is a terrific way to recognize your best students and your department.
The complete nominations must be submitted by the candidate's department chair by January 15, 1998. A department may nominate more than one candidate. Nominees must attend a university or college located in the United States or Canada.
Four copies of the nomination package should be sent to:
