Computer Scientists Receive $2M NSF Grant to Expand Early Research Program for Underrepresented Groups

Sep 18, 2018

A program at the University of California San Diego designed to increase retention of underrepresented groups studying computer science will get a roughly $2 million boost from the National Science Foundation over the next five years.

The funds will support expansion of the Early Research Scholars Program (ERSP) at UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering to at least seven universities, beginning with UC Santa Barbara, Stanford University and University of Illinois at Chicago in the next two years. The grant will also allow researchers to study the long-term outcomes for students who participate in the program.
