View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The REU Program is principally focused on providing students with the opportunity to perform research at the forefront of materials science and engineering. Potential projects span a broad range of topics under the guidance of faculty from the departments of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Physics, Engineering, and Microbiology. The available research topics are chosen to complement the research of associated faculty.

In order to be eligible, students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Those students selected for the program will receive a stipend worth approximately $4,500. The students will also be provided space in a 2-person room in University Housing paid for by the University. (The interns are expected to pay for their own meals.) Students are also provided with a travel allowance of $750.00, to help defray the cost of traveling to and from SIUC or to travel to a scientific conference. A $1000 research allowance is also provided to support each student's research project.
