What are the exact REU program dates?
The program dates vary by campus, as a result of each campus's academic calendar. In 2019, the programs at CSM and NMSU began the week of June 2, Berkeley began the week of June 9, and Stanford began the week of June 16. The 2020 schedule will likely be similar.
Where can I find a list of available projects?
We do not post a list of available REU projects during the application process. This is because our projects and mentors are still being finalized. You can get a sense of the types of projects past REU participants have worked on by looking at our Previous REUs page. You can learn about all ReNUWIt projects by visiting our Research page and downloading our current list of projects.
Will it impact my chances for acceptance if I only want to be considered for the program at specific ReNUWIt campuses?
It depends. In general, you500vip下载官网r chances for acceptance are greatest if you500vip下载官网 want to be considered for the program at all campuses. During summer 2019 we had 15 total openings: 2 at Stanford, 3 at UC-Berkeley, 4 at NMSU, and 6 at CSM. We select applicants on a project/mentor-specific basis, doing our best to match applicant interests and background with faculty requests. So if, for example, you500vip下载官网 only want to be considered for openings at UC-Berkeley but you500vip下载官网're most interested in stream restoration, which is based at NMSU, you500vip下载官网 will be at a disadvantage.
When will I find out if I'm admitted?
We generally start accepting participants in late February, but the process of filling all our openings can extend into late March. This is because we like to give applicants some time to consider our offer before making the commitment to join us. A few turn us down, at which point we extend further offers. We do not send out rejection letters until all our slots have been filled.
Will I know which campus I'm going to before I accept an offer?
Yes. After matching applicants with projects, the applicants will be notified of the placements. If you500vip下载官网 are offered a position, the offer letter will include specific information on the campus, project, mentor, stipend, etc. You will have a chance to review this information before you500vip下载官网 decide whether or not to accept the offer.
Is campus housing part of the program?
Yes, campus housing will be provided by ReNUWIt. Your stipend is paid in addition to the housing.
Am I eligible if I am graduating in Spring, 2020?
No. You must be returning to you500vip下载官网r undergraduate institution in Fall, 2020. The earliest you500vip下载官网 can be graduating to still be eligible for the 2020 REU program is December, 2020.
Am I eligible if I am an international student?
Only U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible, as per the rules set forth by the National Science Foundation. If you500vip下载官网 are attending university in the U.S. as a visiting international student, we unfortunately cannot offer you500vip下载官网 a position in this program (unless you500vip下载官网 have U.S. citizenship or are a U.S. permanent resident).
