We are moving forward with having an in-person REU site in the summer of 2022,
but our ability to do so depends on how the COVID-19 pandemic evolves.
If the pandemic renders an in-person experience infeasible, we will hold the site virtually.
Application Part 1
Summer 2022: Registration is now open!
Complete the Application.
- On the form you will be requested to provide contact,

Upload the following application materials at our
Portal. If you have issues accessing our portal or uploading files to the portal,
please send your document via email to: email@example.com
- A 2-3 page personal statement of
interest in our REU program. The statement should include
what you hope to gain from
the program and how this research experience will
help you achieve your academic and career goals.
Be sure that your name is clearly noticeable on
each page of your statement and note that a
competitive and complete statement will include a
description of the following:
Your specific research interests
(Clearly stated interests are crucial
in determining an appropriate faculty match);
Details about any relevant research experience
you have had in an academic or work setting;
Your goals beyond the baccalaureate degree; and
The qualities you possess that you think will
contribute to your success in the program.

who will write a letter of recommendation for you.
The portal will send a request directly to the letter
writers to upload to the portal directly – you do not
need to collect the letters yourself.
