18 Feb 2014: Applications are closed.
24 Feb 2014: Please watch this space for updates - we had 350 applicants and so we only contact those to whom we are offering spots. As long as the program is NOT filled, we are not done until the final "acceptance pending" offer has been accepted by the student, otherwise the space is still open and there may be more than one person to whom it has been offered.

THE PROGRAM IS FILLED. THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE UM REU. WE ARE SORRY NOT TO HAVE 50 SPOTS, BECAUSE WE COULD CERTAINLY FILL THEM. WE HOPE YOU WILL KEEP THE DEPARTMENT IN MIND AS YOU CONSIDER PHD PROGRAMS IN YOUR FUTURE.

  1. Offers are made via e-mail only.
  2. Only the selected and accepted applicants will be announced in the space below.
  3. Because of the large number of applications we receive, we do not contact applicants who have not been accepted to the program.
  4. We use a rolling acceptance, and make offers to a greater number of students than we have spots for because many students have applied to multiple schools. Under no circumstance should you accept an offer from an REU program unless you are committed to that program. When you say 'yes' to a position in a professional setting, you should mean it.
  5. In general, you have a week or two to make up your mind. By all means, you should contact other programs to which you have applied with this offer, if you have decided there are programs whose offer you will take over ours.

The Domestic REU Program is not open to U-M undergraduate students.
REU programs are only open to US citizens or permanent (green card) residents.

Summer 2014 is the 25th year of funding we have received from the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program. Throughout that time, we have especially welcomed applications from women and students from other populations underrepresented in the sciences.

University of Michigan REU in the Chemical Sciences

We generally receive about 250-350 applications for our program each year. You will receive an automatic notification when you submit your application, along with a file number to give your recommenders. If you do not hear from us, you may assume that your application is complete. We will contact individuals whose files are incomplete.

REU Projects: are available in all subject areas. Please see the Chemistry department website for general areas of faculty interests. You may assume that every member of the faculty is interested in hosting an REU student.

In addition to a research project, there will be other activities, including field trips, meetings of all our summer students, weekly group meetings, and a poster session.

Notice to European students participating in the NSF/ACS/DAAD/ECTN program: We are excited to welcome your application to spend the summer in Ann Arbor. Please indicate your interest in the University of Michigan's REU program to host your visit to the US when you apply through the ACS site: www.acs.org/ireu.

All REU Fellowships include: $4000 stipend, housing, and all travel. All students receive internet access through their existing home university/college e-mail account. You should ensure that you are covered by an appropriate health insurance policy in order to participate in a summer research program.
