The USC Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) offers a 10-week summer research program for undergraduates in interactive virtual experiences. A multidisciplinary research institute affiliated with the University of Southern California, the ICT was established in 1999 to combine leading academic researchers in computing with the creative talents of Hollywood and the video game industry. Having grown to encompass over 130 faculty, staff, and students in a diverse array of fields, the ICT represents a unique interdisciplinary community brought together with a core unifying mission: advancing the state of the art for creating virtual experiences so compelling that people will react as if they were real.

Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of ICT research, we welcome applications from students in computer science, as well as many other fields, such as psychology, art/animation, interactive media, linguistics, and communications.

 - Each summer intern will work with a mentor in one of several labs focusing on areas such as language processing, computational cognition, intelligent tutoring, virtual reality, and computer graphics and vision.

 - Accepted students receive a $6000 stipend in addition to a travel and meals allowance and university housing.

 - Applications are open to students who will be enrolled as undergraduates in Fall 2021, and who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Underrepresented minorities and women are strongly encouraged to apply.

 - Applications are due on January 24, 2021.

This Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) site is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
