Our enhanced Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program recruits faculty-student teams from regional four-year colleges and universities to engage in collaborative summer research with MRSEC faculty, providing a research experience which benefits both the participants and the MRSEC projects. It is expected that the faculty-student teams continue to expand on MRSEC-related research at their home institutions during the academic year. A summer stipend for the professorial member will be provided for up to two full months of full-time commitment to the MRSEC project. The student will receive a weekly stipend plus free room and board for up to 10 weeks of commitment to the project.
