Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Description:
The LRSM has hosted NSF-REU programs since 1989 during which approximately 600 students have spent 10 weeks working on individual research projects with our associated faculty. We currently have funding for 20 undergraduates both through our MRSEC grant and a NSF-REU Site grant. The program runs from early June to August every year and takes applications from well qualified undergraduates who are non-graduating seniors and juniors but sophomores and freshmen can also apply. We encourage applications from under-represented groups in science and engineering, especially from women, minorities, and those with disabilities. The program is restricted to US citizens and permanent residents. Students should apply through our on-line application form.
