UbiComp Lab, High School Research Application, Summer 2021


Hello! The following application is for high school students interested in working on research projects in the Ubiquitous Computing Laboratory at the University of Washington under Professor Shwetak Patel for 10 weeks during the summer. Students who have already worked with the lab before can also re-apply using this online application.

All applications need to be completed by May 1 in order for proper project placement. We can only take a set number of students each quarter that we match to a fitting project. Please provide us with as much detail as possible so that we can find an appropriate match.

Also, note that you can save your progress from previous pages by selecting "save and continue application later" at the top of the survey at any time. This ONLY saves previous pages, not the current page you are on.

The application consists of 8 "pages" of questions, mostly optional and open ended. The first pages ask for basic information, the second pages ask you to rate experience in different areas, and the final pages are essay/short answer. These last questions are optional, but recommended so that we can get to know how you might fit in an existing or new project. You can upload optional supporting documents on the last page of the application (i.e., resume/CV, letters of support, or unofficial transcript). Thanks for your interest!
