The REU Site: Interdisciplinary Materials Research for Undergraduates and the Cornell Center for Materials Research co-organize and co-support a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in 2020. Students have the opportunity to work directly with faculty on interdisciplinary materials research projects involving chemistry, physics, materials science, and engineering disciplines. Students will also participate in an organized program of lectures, laboratory visits and a variety of recreational activities.
The 10-week program takes place on Cornell’s Ithaca campus and includes: a stipend valued at $5,600; housing in a Cornell University dorm; and additional travel funds for non–CU students.
Support for the REU program is provided by the NSF REU Site program (DMR-1757420; 2020 support for 11 students) and the NSF MRSEC program (DMR-1719875; 2020 support for 6 students).
Please note: the REU application is hosted on a third-party site.
Cornell students interested in REU opportunities are encouraged to apply outside of Cornell University
