The Common Application is a collaboration of the CISE REU community, as a means of collecting descriptive information about the national pool of CISE REU applicants. The application is a standardized set of questions used across sites, and are tailored for each site. All PIs are invited and encouraged to use the Common Application as the primary means of collecting applicant pools, which can be customized for each site’s needs. Use of the Common Application is not required by the NSF. Applicants are viewable only to your REU Site team and Audrey Rorrer.
