Co-funded by the ASSURE program of the Department of Defense in partnership with the National Science Foundation, the summer research opportunity focused around the CSU-CHILL Radar Facility. Once research topics are assigned, the REU student will go through the full research process to include, literature survey, writing a proposal, preparing and competing for a project budget, writing an interim progress report and a final report and giving a presentation in a conference setting. Students are encouraged to present their research at professional conferences, and have a good track record of success at conferences. In addition there will be several research field trips planned including nearby New Belgium, CSU Atmospheric Sciences Campus Tour, and a tour of the NCAR flight facilities, as well as close interaction with the CSU-CHILL facility.

Stipend, travel and housing: The program offers a competitive stipend of $5,000 and free on-campus room and a meal plan. Participants stay in Newsom Hall. Travel to and from Fort Collins is incurred by the participant.

Requirements: Undergraduate students pursuing a degree in the areas of science and technology are eligible to apply (i.e. Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Atmospheric Science, Physics). A junior standing is preferred, however, sophomores with good academic standing, particularly those with laboratory experience, will also be considered. Participants must have a minimum 3.0 GPA for consideration. Participants should be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States (NSF Requirement).
