Nichole Clarke '17, a former SuperUROP scholar, is now an EECS graduate student and Siebel Scholar.
Ava Soleimany '16, a former SuperUROP scholar, co-authored a paper published in Science. She is now a graduate student and co-director of a popular Independent Activities Period class on deep learning.
Scholars participate in a yearlong research experience and enroll in 6.UAR (Preparation for Undergraduate Research). Working on supervised projects, students learn the essentials of research, from designing experiments to writing technical papers to presenting at conferences.
