We are now accepting applications to our 2015 REU, so we would like for students in your department to first know about it.
It’s a 10-week program. All undergraduate students are eligible to apply. Selected students will be joining a research group to work with faculty members and graduate students on a specific project. They will also receive free housing, free parking on campus, and a stipend around $5,000.
We also offer 9 seminars in all areas of chemistry throughout the program along with many workshops such as resume building and ethics. Last year participants also visited Oak Ridge National Lab and Eastman Chemical Company. We plan to continue offering site visits this year.
It’s a great opportunity for students who are interested in research or would like to consider grad school after graduation.
More information can be found at: http://www.chem.utk.edu/reu/index.html. Online application: http://www.chem.utk.edu/reu/apply.html.
The application deadline is February 1st 2015.
Please forward this to all that you think will be interested and do not hesitate to contact me if you or your students have any questions.
Thank you and have a good day!
