We suggest that applicants prepare their lengthy responses in a word processing program (e.g., MS Word or Notepad) and cut and paste the text into the boxes below. Finalists will be asked to have official transcripts sent to Alan Wilson by mid-March 2018. If you do not receive a confirmation email from Alan Wilson regarding your application, please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Eligibility: All applicants who are interested in receiving NSF support must currently be a (1) U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or permanent resident and (2) an undergraduate freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior graduating no earlier than September 2018 or a high school senior that will start their undergraduate program the following fall semester after the REU program. We are especially encouraging students from traditionally under-represented groups in biology (i.e., African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, other Pacific Islanders, students with disabilities, first generation college students, and U.S. veterans) as well as students from institutions with limited research opportunities (e.g., community colleges) or students in financial need to apply.
International students: Although not financially supported by our REU Site, we are also open to including a few strongly motivated and self-funded international students in our REU Site research and professional development activities.
