Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year

Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The Department of Chemistry offers two summer research programs for undergraduates:

•National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF REU)

•i-REU: Research Experience of International Undergraduate Students

Summer Research—NSF REU

Rochester is a site for the NSF REU program, providing funding for a number of students every summer. As required by NSF policy, the program is open only to domestic students, and preference will be given to students from schools that do not have a PhD program in chemistry. Underrepresented minority students and women are especially encouraged to apply.

Summer research students have their own research problem, a specific faculty advisor, and a specific day-to-day graduate student or postdoctoral mentor. Everybody participates in a weekly group meeting, reporting to each other on their research projects and results in oral, poster, and written form.

International REU Students:

Summer Research Fellowship program for international students (i-REU). This highly competitive program is designed to provide young promising undergraduates in Chemistry from all over the world the opportunity to conduct first class research for 8-10 weeks at the University of Rochester. The program is meant for outstanding students that intend to enter into a PhD program in any area of Chemistry in the Fall of 2018 or earlier.

The standard period of the i-REU program is from May 30 to August 4. Alternative starting dates within the summer period will be considered in exceptional circumstances and on a case-by-case basis.

Through the program, participants receive a weekly stipend of $450 (~$1800/month), health insurance during their stay, and up to $1000 toward travel costs. The program also covers any associated registration and tuition fees. The stipend is meant to cover living expenses (room and board) during your stay in Rochester. Through the International Student and Global Engagement Office, we will assist you in securing on-campus housing and a US Visa to conduct research at the University of Rochester.

Featured Program!

The Fisk-Vanderbilt Masters-to-Ph.D. Bridge Program

The Fisk-Vanderbilt Master’s-to-PhD Bridge Program focuses on increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in astronomy, biology, chemistry, materials science and physics. Students work towards the Master’s degree at Fisk with the intention to enter a PhD program at Vanderbilt or elsewhere, with access to instructional and research opportunities at both institutions. Tuition, stipend, and medical insurance are provided. Click here to learn more and apply!
