2017 University of Michigan
REU Program

Welcome. The University of Michigan Department of Chemistry will once again offer its long-running REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) Site in 2017. The entire faculty welcomes interest in its research programs, and projects are available in all disciplinary and interdisciplinary areas of study. Please spend some time to acqaint yourself with the research interests of the faculty by reading the descriptions at our department’s web site. You can sort the faculty interests on the traditional research cluster (organic, inorganic, etc) or by the different interdisciplinary research themes (energy, nano, optics, etc).

All REU Fellowships include: $4500 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.

Monday, Nov 28, 2016: Applications open for Summer 2017 (Wed, May 31 – Tue, Aug 8, 2017).
Friday, Feb 10, 2017: Application deadline.

  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 2017 will be the 28th 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.

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 interest. You may assume that every member of the faculty is interested in hosting an REU student. See links at the top of this page, in the first paragraph.

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.
