Support is requested for the continuation of the GT-SUPREEM program, in which the

Georgia Institute of Technology serves as a NSF REU site. GT-SUPREEM is a ten-week summer

research program designed to attract qualified minority students into the field of electrical

engineering. Ten students of at least junior-level undergraduate standing will be recruited annually

on a nationwide basis and paired with both a faculty and a graduate student mentor to undertake

research projects in the Georgia Tech School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The students

will be housed on campus, and in addition to lodging, meals, and a travel allowance, will be provided

with a $4,000 stipend. At the conclusion of the summer, the students will be expected to prepare

both oral and written summaries of their research projects. It is anticipated that this experience will

encourage these students to become applicants for graduate school in the ensuing years. Three years

of support are requested.
