The Department of Chemistry at Vanderbilt University welcomes applications from undergraduates to participate in their REU in Chemical Biology, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF REU).
The application deadline is February 15, 2023.
This REU is a ten week hands-on course designed to introduce chemistry, biochemistry and biology students to the research processes and the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research. Students participate in a mini-symposium on drug discovery, attend seminars given by VICB faculty working across disciplinary lines, and participate in weekly discussions on topics such as ethics.
The 2023 will run from May 30th to August 4th in Nashville, TN. Students receive a stipend of $6000 for the 10-week program, and the program will assist with housing arrangements.
Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors are encouraged to apply.
Scientific Thinkers is a student organization and volunteer program here at The Ohio State University. Through Scientific Thinkers, OSU students have the opportunity to positively impact the Columbus community by sharing their knowledge with elementary students by way of interactive lessons and experiments. The schools the organization serves are comprised largely of underrepresented minority students in STEM and have limited STEM resources within their school. Scholars students can benefit from joining Scientific Thinkers by gaining experience in teaching a unique age group, increasing their leadership skills, and expanding their ability to communicate their knowledge of STEM topics to a variety of age groups.
The program is highly rewarding and is a great way to complete community service and outreach requirements. More information can be found at https://u.osu.edu/cemscientificthinkers/. Students can view the program calendar and determine if their availability works. If students are interested they should attend a mandatory orientation on Wednesday, February 1 at 1:00 PM in 1080 Physics Research Building. Interested students may also email email@example.com to schedule a make-up orientation.
The Chemistry Department at the University of North Texas is now accepting applications for its Summer 2023 NSF-REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) Program.
This program offers interdisciplinary research experiences at the forefront of the chemical sciences. Although our faculty research groups are grounded in “traditional” areas of chemistry (analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, biochemistry), most of their research projects cross boundaries between these areas. A unique aspect of this REU program is that all projects will involve collaboration between two or more research groups, including both experimental and computational researchers.
Participants will connect with career-active researchers at major international chemical companies and tour local companies to learn how chemistry plays a role in the economy. They will also engage in hands-on learning experiences and training in scientific communication and research ethics.
- Students who will not have earned their Bachelor’s degree prior to the program end date are eligible to apply.
- U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
- $6,000 stipend
- Up to $2,000 conference travel allowance
- Accommodation at UNT for 10 weeks (May 21 – July 29, 2023)
Apply by March 8, 2023.
The Denman Undergraduate Research Forum provides an opportunity for graduating student researchers to share their research endeavors with the broader community. Winners are recognized in each category as determined by faculty, staff, and Denman alumni reviewers. Students will be reviewed on their ability to communicate their research process and results effectively in both their written poster content and accompanying oral presentation.
The application will close on Sunday, February 5, 2023 at 11:59pm.
Applicants must be graduating during spring, summer, or autumn 2023.
In 2022, Honorable Mention winners received $200; Third Place received $300, Second Place, $400; and our First Place winners received $500.
The Denman Forum for the 2022-2023 academic year will take place on Tuesday, March 7, 2023.
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics (BMB) at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis invites undergraduate students to apply to its 2023 summer research program.
Students will join a lab that matches their interests where they will complete real-life research at the cutting edge of molecular biochemistry and biophysics. Research areas in the department range from single-molecule spectroscopy to molecular simulations to mitochondrial biochemistry. As well as conducting research, students will also attend workshops that cover various important areas in science, including how to design experiments, how to read papers, scientific communication, and guidance on graduate school applications, etc.
No prior research experience is required. Applicants from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
Local travel, housing, a meal plan, and an additional monthly stipend of $2000 will be provided (total of $4000 for the 8-week program). The program will run roughly between June 1st – July 30, 2023. Applicants must have completed their sophomore year before June 2023, and the ideal candidates will be considering applications to graduate school in the fall of 2023.
The program flyer contains more detailed information and application instructions. Applications are due by February 15, 2023.

The Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) is designed to help historically underrepresented students explore opportunities for graduate study and academic careers. Over the course of nine weeks during the summer, Ohio State SROP participants will conduct research with a faculty mentor on a topic of mutual interest, and participate in activities crucial to preparation for graduate school, including a professional development series. At the end of the summer program, participants present their research at the Research Symposium to faculty, staff, and summer scholars.
The program provides students with a $5,000 stipend, travel, housing, meal plan, and an enriching research experience with a faculty mentor while providing faculty with opportunities to recruit talented and diverse students into their graduate programs.
The program will run from May 30 to July 28, 2023.
Underrepresented students are encouraged to apply. This includes students of color, first-generation college students, and students from low-income families, regardless of race or ethnicity.
