Support us

The Institute for Computing in Research is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity. We are proud to operate on a shoestring: our organizers, guest scientist and mentors are volunteers, and we use donated space for our institute. Donations go entirely to fund our student internships. Everything else comes from volunteer work. This means that even a very small donation goes far, and we are touched by any donation.

The Institute for Computing in Research can receive tax-exempt donations through the Software Freedom Conservancy.

A few words about why this is an important charity: we address a shortcoming in what is offered to motivated young students. These internships are a crucial step in developing young researchers and in developing a well trained workforce which then allows the growth of high tech industry. But at this time the high-end internships where mentors are world-class scientists are effectively only available to children of well connected families.
