NEES REU Applications due February 28, 2011

The NEES Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) is a dynamic 10-week summer research program for upper division undergraduate students interested in civil engineer, computer science/engineering, seismic risk mitigation, or engineering education. Students work with NEES researchers, attend virtual trainings with other REU interns and participate in enrichment activities. Mentors include university faculty, researchers and graduate students. Participants are assigned to an individual project that contributes to the goals of an existing NEES research project or to development of cyberinfrastructure tools and/or educational modules. Students receive $5,000 stipend inclusive of housing expenses.

Candidates must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 for acceptance; NSF limits participation to U.S. citizens and permanent residents of the United States. Aspirants are asked to include personal educational data, contact information, references, background demographics, identify specific completed engineering and math courses and skill proficiency, respond to three essay questions, and rank the preferred research site out of the six participating locations.

This year’s sites include: Lehigh University; Oregon State University; University of California, Los Angeles; University of California, Santa Barbara; University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; and the University of Nevada, Reno.

Applications for the summer 2011 REU session are now available at REU Program Application and must be completed and submitted online no later 8:00 a.m. PDT on February 28, 2011.
