TREND REU 2021 Application
Use the form below to apply for TREND 2021. In addition to the form below, the application also includes:
- Unofficial transcript sent to trend-reu@umd.edu
- At least one letter of recommendation sent to trend-reu@umd.edu (TREND will not send out requests for letters of recommendation; this is the applicant's responsibility)

Note that we are still uncertain about the format of the program due to possible restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic. The program might run in person, remote+in-person hybrid, or fully online/remotely.

We successfully ran a fully remote program in 2020 and are prepared to do so next year. All listed projects are likely to be able to offer a project even if the program runs remotely.
