This program is supported by funds from the National Science Foundation under the auspices of the Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program. Projects involving REU students at Georgetown are available in all of the major subject areas of chemistry (Analytical, Biochemistry, Inorganic, Materials, Organic, Physical and Theoretical). You should refer to the Chemistry Department’s website to learn more about the research interests of individual faculty members. In addition to being heavily involved in a research project, REU participants will participate in other activities, including a series of weekly professional development workshops, field trips to sites of local interest, and a final poster session.
The Summer 2013 program will run from May 28-August 2. The REU Fellowship includes a $5,000 stipend, housing (shared room in an on-campus residence hall), and up to $400 towards travel expenses will be reimbursed.
To be eligible for the Georgetown REU program, you must
- be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident;
- not be graduating before the summer;
- be a full-time student;
- be available for full-time research work (minimum of Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm); and
- be prepared to live on-campus for the duration of the program.
Offers may be extended throughout the application process, and all positions may be filled prior to the deadline. Thus, you are highly encouraged to submit your application well before the deadline. The Georgetown REU Program especially welcomes applications from women and students from other populations underrepresented in the sciences.
