Undergraduate summer program at Berkeley
This looks like a great program. They pay for travel and accomodations.
We are organizing a short summer program for undergraduates. During this one-week workshop, undergraduates work closely with statisticians and graduate students to analyze data from important, current research problems at the frontiers of applied statistics. The goal is to encourage them to pursue advanced studies in statistical science.
