Description: The Alaska Research Summer Challenge is a summer intern program for up to ten under-graduate students to spend the summer in Fairbanks, Alaska and study at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Interns are recruited from targeted minority institutions. The students work under the direction of the Program Manager at the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (ARSC) and are assigned projects where they work under the day-to-day supervision of individual researchers on active research projects. These mentors are composed of senior staff and faculty. Major objectives are to promote interests in arctic research and develop research skills within the students. Minority students are recruited to study in target areas of Computer Science, which are traditionally underrepresented, such as programming, computer architecture and visualization.
