Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates

Apply to the Bioengineering Education Research REU

Students apply to the overall BER REU program, and can indicate an interest in a particular area of research, but not a particular site.  Faculty mentors will select students to extend offers to. 

Your site location will be determined by the location of the faculty who select you.

Applicants should be:

  • A rising college sophomore (i.e., current freshman) or higher
  • Not graduating college before the summer of the program
  • A citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.
  • Majoring in a STEM field or in education
  • Have an interest in teaching or education

An application consists of four components:

1. Application form
2. Personal Statement
3. Transcript (unofficial is acceptable)
4. One Letter of Recommendation

The application process, including all supporting documents, is entirely online.
