Your resume is how you provide faculty reviewers information about your research experience, academic strengths, skills, and other relevant experiences that make you an appealing candidate for the Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program. For this program, your resume may look more like a curriculum vita than a traditional resume, since it's not necessary to spend a lot of time describing work experiences unrelated to research.

- Awards, honors, and scholarships
- Volunteer and extracurricular activities
- Relevant work experience
