Human-Centered Computing Scholars: Fostering a New Generation of Underrepresented and Financially Disadvantaged Researchers
Clemson University's Human-Centered Computing Scholars (HCCS) program supports ten financially disadvantaged doctoral students in its School of Computing. The Scholars conduct research in Human-Centered Computing and work on projects related to accessibility, biometrics, virtual humans, virtual reality, educational technologies, information technology policy and social computing. During the summer months, the project also supports two undergraduate researchers who work in teams with and are mentored by the doctoral students. Each doctoral Scholar is also given an opportunity to participate in a summer internship with a government or industrial research lab.
