How this program can help you:

For undergraduates interested in graduate school, it can sometimes be challenging to find meaningful research experiences that offer hands-on opportunities coupled with close work and mentoring with skilled faculty researchers. The REU program, is an ideal way to gain valuable research experience!

Participating in this experience-rich, hands-on research opportunity with faculty mentors committed to your success, the program will provide training to develop your research skills while increasing your marketability for admission to competitive graduate programs.

COVID Note: While we were hopeful that we would be able to offer an in-person program for Summer 2021, we must follow regulations set by the universities and local, state, and federal governments. This year’s experience will be delivered remotely in a fully online format.
