REU Summer Program at University of Connecticut

We are seeking participants for our Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program!

Our principal objective is the exposure of undergraduates from primarily non-Ph.D. granting institutions to a stimulating research environment. We especially encourage women to apply to our program. Taking advantage of our state-of-the-art facilities including wheel chair accessible fume hoods in our new Chemistry building and the extensive infrastructure at the UConn supporting students with disabilities, we also welcome applications from this group.

Participants will spend 10 weeks (from Monday, June 2 to Friday, August 8, 2008) working with UConn faculty and graduate students on a research project at the cutting-edge of chemistry. The research program is accompanied by a series of seminars and a varied social program.

Participants will gain knowledge of the fundamentals of scientific research, experience the intellectual delights of discovery, practice both verbal and written communication of research results, and secure a foundation for making informed decisions regarding future careers.

Our program support includes stipends of $4000, a travel allowance, and room and partial board in our modern University Dormitories. More information about our program, eligibility rules, and application forms are available from this website (see links on the side bar) or can be obtained by contacting the address below.
