The Department of Chemistry is pleased to announce the Academic Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program,
which began during the Fall semester of 2005. Students will have the opportunity to do research for an entire semester in a faculty
mentors laboratory as well as participate in scheduled events. The scheduled events will include seminars on faculty research, writing,
patents and licensing, presentation skills, and graduate school. Students will register for CHM 4970 and can receive 1 to 3 credit hours.
To receive credit, students will be required to write a short research paper as well as present a poster at an end of semester poster event.

Within these pages you will find information about the research projects, the faculty mentors,
the guidelines, and the proposed schedule. If you are interested in participating in the program please fill out an
online application and submit as soon as possible.
The Academic REU Program is accepting applications for this academic year (including Summer). You need to
apply before you can register for CHM 4970. After receiving and reviewing your
application, we will contact you to set up a meeting with a potential research mentor. The application process is currently open and will
close at the end of this semester.
Please feel free to contact one of the faculty mentors or the
program coordinators if you have any questions.
