Subject: [FUN_Mail] REU at PUIs - please, let your students know

Good morning all,

I am so excited to let you know about a new Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Collaborative award, funded by the National Science Foundation, to The College of Wooster, Wooster, OH, Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, OH, Kenyon College, Gambier, OH, and Earlham College, Richmond, IN.  It will support 16 students for 9 weeks during the summers of 2016-2018.  Undergraduate participants will receive a stipend of $4,725 in addition to housing, meal and travel allowances.  This summer we will meet between May 16th and July 15th.

This REU unites the successful neuroscience undergraduate research programs of four predominately undergraduate institutions in Northern Ohio and Eastern Indiana. The REU consists of four research teams, one per partner institution, each with four students and two faculty mentors for a nine-week summer REU. Each group will focus on a separate research project from a faculty mentor’s area of expertise. Participants will work on challenging, authentic research questions and learn methods, skills and content to succeed in their research endeavors at their home institutions. In addition, during biweekly consortium meetings, participants will learn methods, skills and content on research methods being used at the partner institutions.

Participants will also engage in discussion on their projects, learn about the progress of their peers, network with other students, hear about career opportunities in academe and industry, develop ethical and responsible research conduct strategies and improve CV, cover letter and interview skills during the weekly consortium meetings that will bring the research groups together in-person and virtually. Students will present their findings at a research symposium at the conclusion of the program.

Apply by March 11 at: http://apply.interfolio.com/<http://apply.interfolio.com/33724>33724<http://apply.interfolio.com/33724>
