CURP is the Center for Data Science Undergraduate Research Program, which was launched in Spring 2021 by the Center for Data Science (CDS) in partnership with the National Society of Black Physicists. This year CDS will be offering more mentors from a broader range of research areas with computing and research projects in summer 2023!

About CURP & DeepMind Scholars
Isaac Robinson, 2021 CURP Scholar
CURP taught me how to design a research process and work with a team. It taught me to grapple with questions without clear answers, work smarter and harder towards a goal I defined myself, and most of all, how to be a part of a scholarly community. A life-changing experience I would highly recommend!
