Description:
Hands-on research infuses the traditional undergraduate curriculum with excitement. To date, the IIN has provided 387 students with a glimpse into the life of a scientific researcher, as well as opportunities to meet and work with world-renowned scientists.

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) participants engage in full-time research over a nine-week period in the summer. They also attend regular group meetings that provide an opportunity to share their progress and gain a broad overview of a wide array of scientific projects. Additional activities include special lectures, a field trip to Argonne National Laboratory, an individual writing workshop, and a public speaking seminar.

At the end of the summer, each student completes a substantive research paper and presents their research accomplishments at a closing symposium.

REU participants receive a $5,750 stipend, round-trip airfare, a meal plan, and housing in Northwestern dormitories.
