CCMR is no longer taking REU applications for summer 2021
CCMR REU students 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. Applicants select their top five projects from a list of projects available in 2021.
The 10-week program takes place on Cornell’s Ithaca campus and includes: a stipend of $5,600; free housing in a Cornell University dorm; and additional travel funds for non–CU students. The CCMR REU Program requires residency at Cornell Ithaca campus from June 7 to August 13, 2021, attendance of all program sessions, and completion of all assigned projects. The CCMR REU participants are required to work full-time in the program and may not hold outside jobs or enroll in classes. Payment of the stipend is conditioned on the completion of all requirements.
REU eligibility requirements:
Minority and women candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
All STEM majors are welcome to apply.
Cornell students interested in REU programs are encouraged to apply outside of Cornell University.
Selection is based on academic standing and faculty recommendations.
Project descriptions will indicate which projects cannot run remotely. Applicants will be notified of all developments and changes to program requirements.
All accepted candidates will be required to sign the Cornell University Student Behavioral Compact upon arriving on campus for the 10-week program. See https://covid.cornell.edu/students/behavioral-compact/ for the current compact.
