The Computational Science for Undergraduate Research Experiences (CSURE) is an NSF funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program organized by the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences (JICS), www.jics.utk.edu/csure-reu. The main goal of the CSURE project is to direct a group of ten undergraduate students to explore the emergent computational science models and techniques proven to work on the supercomputers at the National Institute for Computational Sciences (NICS). In addition, a number of summer interns from Hong Kong also participated in the program. The CSURE program focuses on five different scientific domains: chemistry and material sciences, systems biology, engineering mechanics, atmospheric sciences, and parallel solvers on emergent platforms. The program also enjoys the joint relationship with researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Because of these diverse topics of research area and backgrounds of participant, we will in this paper entail the challenges and resolutions in managing and coordinating the program, delivering cohesive tutorial materials, directing mentorship of individual projects, and a few good lessons learned in the duration of the program since it started in 2013.
