How to Apply


To apply to our program all applicants must:

  1. Submit the electronic REU Application Form. Within the application, you will need to upload your unofficial transcript and a
    personal essay. You will also need to provide us with the names of two references. Two references are required. Your references
    should be familiar with your academic work.
  2. Once you have submitted your application and provided us with your references’ information, we will contact them directly with
    instructions on how to submit a letter of recommendation.

Thank you for your interest in our Summer 2021 REU program. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our program has been cancelled.
We encourage eligible students to apply for next year’s program for Summer 2022. Please check our website in late Fall for updated application information.¬†
