REU: Research Experiences for Undergraduates
For nine years, the E3S Research Experiences for Undergraduates (E3S REU) program provided residential research internships to undergraduate students from across the country. Participants of this competitive merit-based program undertook cutting edge in the laboratories of E3S faculty, pursuing research projects in electrical engineering, material science, physics and chemistry. They also participated in enrichment activities including technical seminars, field trips, subsidized GRE prep courses, and advising on graduate school programs and fellowship applications. Participants of this program have gone on to complete Bachelor’s degrees in Engineering and enroll in elite PhD programs.
This E3S REU program has concluded our funding cycle and is no longer accepting applications. Alternative REU programs can be found via nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/
