Chemistry Research Opportunities

The updated REU website http:/chemistry.fiu.eduundergraduate/reu, and application suite are all up and running, and they are already accepting applications for this summer with a March 1st deadline.

The chemistry department emphasizes that even though they are typically receiving 300-400 applications, they do show preference for excellent women and underrepresented minority applicants from primarily undergraduate institutions, especially from ones that we have developed "recruiting relationships" through the years.

Through our REU program, students have a "taste" of the graduate school experience and at the same time this will both serve well our National Science Foundation mission of providing opportunities for research for underrepresented students, and benefit in the long term, our graduate program and the growth of our department.
