The Department of
Computer Science is pleased to announce that we have been
awarded a U.S. Department of
Education grant from the Graduate Assistantships in Areas of
National Need (GAANN) program.
This grant will support three
fellowships in Computer Science.
The GAANN fellowships will be awarded to outstanding PhD students
who are US
citizens or permanent residents,
have demonstrated financial need
(graduate assistants are considered independent of their parents
for the purpose of calculating financial need),
and are interested in pursuing a career in research and
Preference will be given to incoming students - please apply to the graduate program.
pay up to $30,000 (based on need as determined by the Free Application for
Financial Student Aid (FAFSA) program) plus tuition and fees.
GAANN Fellows will be supported by the GAANN grant for up to three years
research assistantships in subsequent years.
GAANN Fellows will be supervised by CS Faculty and be involved in exciting disciplinary and multi-disciplinary research projects.
The CS Faculty at BU includes world-renown leaders in many central areas of computer science, including analysis of algorithms, complexity theory, cryptography, computer vision, databases and data mining, fault-tolerant computing, networking, operating systems, performance evaluation, programming languages, real-time systems, security, theory of computation, and distributed systems.
A sample of research projects include:
Computer Vision and Modeling:
Security and Privacy:
Distributed Systems and High-Performance Computing:
