Information about the application:

First, and most importantly, there are file upload components to this application, so a Google account is required. If you do not have a Google account, please contact us at hcii-reu [at] andrew.cmu.edu for assistance.

This application should take around 30 minutes to complete, depending on whether or not you have reviewed the available projects. Once you complete the application, you will receive a copy of your responses, and be allowed to edit your submission up until the application deadline. In the event you find you need to edit your submission, please click the “Edit Response” button in the email you receive with a copy of your original responses.

While it is not required, applicants are encouraged to attach their resume, unofficial transcripts, and letters of recommendation. These materials must all be submitted by the deadline to be considered with your application. Anything received after the deadline will not be included with your application packet for consideration. This program is highly competitive, with over 300 applications and only accepted 40 students last year, the supplementary materials can go a long way in making you stand out from the other applicants.
