Students who will graduate at the end of the Spring 2024 term are not eligible for this program. Participants must be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or its possessions (NSF requirement).
While there are no set course requirements, our REU Program is oriented towards students who have completed at least some college level biology and general chemistry.
Students from groups that are traditionally under-represented in science (women, under-represented ethnic and racial minorities, and those with physical challenges) are especially encouraged to apply. Also, students from smaller undergraduate institutions with limited opportunities for research are encouraged to apply.
