Chemistry REU Summer Program

No REU Program for Summer 2016.

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 research interests of professors 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 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

  1. be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident;
  2. not be graduating before the summer;
  3. be a full-time student;
  4. be available for full-time research work (minimum of Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm); and
  5. be prepared to live on-campus for the duration of the program.
