Note: Applications for Summer 2021 are no longer being accepted.

The selection process has been delayed as we await a university decision on housing/travel and hosting an in-person program. This impacts the number of students we can accept.

Application review will begin March 1, 2021. Applications received after this date will be considered on a rolling basis until all positions are filled. Please submit all application materials as soon as possible.

Our Summer 2020 REU Program was primarily virtual/remote. We plan to host at least a hybrid onsite/virtual program this summer. Operation of the 2021 program is subject to possible constraints relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.   If you are offered a position in the program, we will keep you informed about any situations that may affect whether your participation will be onsite or remote.
