Research Experience for Undergraduates Seeking Veterans Interested in Chemistry

The National Science Foundation, who makes REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) possible, gives undergraduates the opportunity to join research projects for the summer. This allows students to experience first-hand how basic research is carried out, and to contribute consequentially.

Participants experience the entire scientific process: planning and conducting experiments, interpreting results, drawing conclusions, and presenting their results in written and oral form. The program exposes participants to the full breadth of chemical research, including the vast array of chemistry subfields and related interdisciplinary topics. At weekly luncheon sessions, faculty members present various chemistry research topics, followed by student research presentations in the last two weeks. Additional activities include a career program, an ethics seminar, and a multi-university poster session.
