REU: Research Experience for Undergraduates

Welcome to the Coe College Research Experience for Undergraduates program. This program is funded by the National Science Foundation and the DoD Assure program, with additional support provided by Coe College. The research program begins June 4 and concludes August 3, 2018. A stipend in the amount of $4,635 is awarded to all participating students. Free on-campus housing will be provided by Coe College, and travel funds are available to assist with moving expenses.

A variety of exciting research projects and the biographical sketches of participating faculty are described in Mentors and Projects. All students interested in the research experience at Coe College are encouraged to apply. An additional goal of our program is to provide a research experience for students from institutions where opportunities are limited, first-generation college students, and students from other under-represented groups.

Government eligibility requirements stipulate that participants be citizens or permanent residents of the US.

For full consideration, the application should be submitted before midnight, Feb 15.

RET: Research Experience for Teachers

The Coe College NSF RET program brings secondary education science teachers to campus for a research experience in one of the laboratory sciences. Participants have the opportunity to choose from the selection of projects in the REU program, attend weekly lectures, and use advanced instrumentation. A stipend of $7,725 will be paid to each teacher for the research term of June 4 through July 20, 2018. Additional funds are available to help support travel to a scientific conference and present research findings. Coe College will provide housing for teachers who cannot commute to the campus.
