Program in Interdisciplinary Education Research (PIER) at CMU is pleased to announce its 2017 Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU).
PIER-REU is designed to increase the participation of underrepresented minorities in graduate training programs by providing undergraduate students (mainly juniors and seniors) with research experience during summer. This program allows talented undergraduates to spend 8 weeks during the summer in a research laboratory at CMU. Each student will receive a fellowship stipend of $3,000 and apartment-style housing will be provided. Guidance and supervision of the research project will be provided by a faculty member as well as, in some cases, a postdoctoral fellow and/or advanced graduate student. Admitted students will also participate in the Go Research! Summer Program at CMU. This program brings undergraduate researchers from across departments together in apartment-style dorms with resident assistants to facilitate community building, manage housing, and provide programming. A Summer Seminar Series is provided for all students to help prepare for graduate education and research careers.
Applications are due via email by March 20, 2017.
Additional information and a link to the application are available on the program website.
