Abstract: The CI Compass Fellowship Program (CICF) was developed to broaden undergraduate student participation in cyberinfrastructure (CI) research, development, and operations. CICF is a distinctive program for undergraduate students pursuing studies in computer science, information science, data science, and other related fields. During year one of the program, CICF had six students participate from two institutions. During year 2 of the program, CICF had fourteen students participate from nine institutions. This poster provides details of the CICF program development and summarizes the impact of the first two years.
