What is this?

Since the end of summer 2003 I had been thinking about my work choices for the coming summer. I had a great time working at Kavi Corp in Portland, and I was ready to do another summer there. At the same time, I wanted to get some real research experience. Early in Fall term at UO I talked with my advisor, Jan Cuny, about options for research experience, and she immediately recommended that I apply for several summer internships; one was the CRA-W DMP.

Here's the way it works: You apply. The DMP matches you by interest to a professor in the US who applied to the program as a mentee. In the summer, off you go, to do research with your mentee in their field.
