Summer Research Experiences
The goal of the ten-week Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program is to provide hands-on scientific research activities in Center laboratories. Stipends are awarded on the basis of academic excellence, motivation, scientific potential and compatibility of personal interests and long-term career goals with current Center research interests. If selected, the student will be matched with a faculty research mentor. REU participants are selected from a nationwide pool of undergraduates, including University of Chicago students. Applicants with computational science backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply. At the conclusion of their projects, students will produce a written summary report and present their findings at a symposium.
