How to Apply for 2020 Summer REU Program

First check out these important details: To apply for our Summer 2020 program: Your application is complete with submission of an application form, a copy of the transcript, and two recommendations. If your submission is not complete, you will be contacted by email and asked for missing documents about ten days before the application deadline.

The last day for receipt of all items is February 23. The on-line application form and recommendation form should be submitted by midnight (23:59) Mountain Standard Time on the 23rd when the site will be closed.

We will send out our first offers by e-mail in the first week of March, 2020 (the common REU offer date in our field), though it may be a few weeks before our list of REU participants is finalized.   N.B.:  If you receive an offer, you will be expected to either accept or decline by March 15. Extensions of this deadline are not possible, so it will be useful for you to have a clear idea of your priorities, and a realistic grasp of your opportunities, among the programs to which you have applied. We notify all applicants when our program is full.
