SALSA HPC Lab has participated in the Indiana University HBCU STEM Summer Scholar Institute and hosted 23 REU students since 2009. The STEM scholars were recruited through ADMI (Association of Computer and Information Science/Engineering Departments at Minority Institutions) and A4RC (Alliance for Advancement of African-American Researchers in Computing) with selected universities including Elizabeth City State University, North Carolina A&T State University and Mississippi Valley State University and Hampton University. Students spend 8 weeks in the summer on Indiana University campus and actively engage in faculty-mentored research with SALSA group on data enabled science projects examplified by life science, polar science and cyberinfrastructure supported by NSF FutureGrid and CReSIS projects. One of our summer interns, Keenan Black won first place on "Data Point visualization and Clustering Analysis" at the STARS Celebration Conference in Orlando, FL in 2010. SALSA projects are funded by Natural Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Microsoft Corperation, and Eli Lilly Corperation.

Prof. Judy Qiu works closely with Prof. Linda Hayden and Dr. Maureen Biggers on this REU project. It is a wonderful academic and research collaboration that promote and develop the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines.​
