Applications for Spring 2018

Please read carefully. Failure to follow the procedure may cause delays or ineligibility to join the program. Completing this application does not guarantee an REU position. Positions are very competitive; read instructions thoroughly and apply as soon as possible.

There are two sections below. One is for new undergraduate researchers and the other is for returning undergraduate researchers.

For priority consideration for summer the online application must be submitted by January 2nd.



For new students and students who want to work with a new faculty mentor:


Summer and fall, deadlines for New REUs

The Office of Undergraduate Research provides workshops to guide you through the process of finding a research mentor if you are unsure of how to identify the faculty member you would like to work with. "Getting Started" is the first step and the schedule is at the bottom of the page.
http://www.lib.usf.edu/undergraduate-research/getting-started-workshops/

Students interested in working with chemistry department faculty are encouraged to submit their completed application and permit forms by email as soon as possible to the faculty member of interest. General deadlines are listed below, but faculty may hold interviews earlier than dates listed.

Summer research - apply no later than April 21st.

Fall research - apply no later than August 7th.

The permit form (completed by the applicant and signed by the faculty mentor) must be turned in by close of business, May 19th for summer (August 26th for fall-only applications).

If accepted for REU, the faculty mentor can sign the permit form and submit directly to ChemAdvise@usf.edu by close of business, May 19th for summer REU (August 26th for fall-only REU). If a faculty mentor sends the permit form to the student, the student should forward the permit form to ChemAdvise@usf.edu.

Chemistry advisors will review the completed permit form and issue you a permit for CHM 4970 or IDS 4914. Once granted a permit, applicants must register for CHM 4970 or IDS 4914 before regular registration for the term ends. No late-add petitions will be supported or processed.

When you click on the Apply Now! button below, you will be taken to a form. Once you have completed and submitted the form, your REU application will be generated and emailed directly to you. Finally, forward your application to the mentor(s) you are considering so they can review your application. You have not applied to the program until you have emailed your application to one of the REU participating faculty.
