The EmPOWERment Research In Sustainable Energy (RISE) summer program is a 10-week intensive experience that provides talented Ohio State undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work on a research project related to sustainable energy in a supportive environment designed to develop and enhance their research skills.
Students conduct research in the lab of an Ohio State faculty member with the support of an academic mentor and peer mentor. Students also participate in communication and research-skill building activities and enjoy community-building activities with a broader network of summer research program scholars across Ohio State through The Consortium. Students have the opportunity to present their research results at a campus-wide symposium held at the program conclusion.
Students will receive a stipend of $5000 to support their participation over the 10 weeks. Students participate on a full-time basis (40-hours per week).
Current undergraduate students, including current seniors, at Ohio State are eligible to apply.
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.
The Chemistry Department at the University of North Texas is now accepting applications for itsSummer 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.
Up to $2,000 conference travel allowance
Accommodation at UNT for 10 weeks (May 21 – July 29, 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 University of Pittsburgh Chemistry Department is accepting applications to their 2023 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship program.
Research opportunities are available for 4-6 undergraduate students from underrepresented groups and/or female students who are expected to graduate in 2024. Students will receive a stipend of $4300 for 10 weeks of summer research as well as free housing on the University of Pittsburgh’s campus. The program will run from May 30 to August 4, 2023.
Chemistry majors are preferred. For available research areas and groups, please visit here.
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.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) and Division of Nuclear & Technology of the American Chemical Society (ACS) are sponsoring two intensive six-week Summer Schools in Nuclear & Radiochemistry for undergraduates. Funding is provided by the US Department of Energy.
The students receive an all-expense paid opportunity to complete a 6-week summer course (June 12, 2023 – July 21, 2023) in Nuclear Chemistry and Radiochemistry in either California at San Jose State University or New York at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Students also earn hours (tuition paid) of undergraduate chemistry credit through either San Jose State University or Stony Brook University (The State University of New York). Selected students also receive a stipend of $4,000 for the 6-week program.
Candidates should be undergraduates with an interest in nuclear science who are presently in their sophomore or junior year of study at a US college or university. They should have completed at least two years of chemistry, one year of physics, and one year of calculus.
The University of Cincinnati’s Chemistry REU helps students build research skills and develop as emerging professionals and independent scientists. Participants will learn about real-life challenges that scientists are currently addressing, such as “Data Science for Big Data in Chemistry” and “Sustainable Chemistry.” Both chemistry and biochemistry research projects are available.
Students will also work closely with faculty and graduate students while working on their research project, each of which has been designed to have a tangible result during the ten-week program, running from May 30th to August 4th.
The program also includes a weekly discussion series and an end of program poster session to highlight the results of students research. A stipend of $6,000 will be awarded to each student in the program, as well as housing and meals on UC’s campus.
Colorado State University and UC Berkeley are cohosting a summer Research Experience for Undergrads (REU) in Summer 2023. This REU focuses on extreme ultraviolet high power lasers and their applications, including materials science, chemistry, physics, and engineering. REU programs are sponsored by the NSF and provide an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to get hands-on experience working in active research labs- a great asset to list on your resume or graduate school application.
Students accepted to this 10-week REU program will conduct research at either the Extreme Ultraviolet Engineering Research Center (EUV ERC) at Colorado State University or at University of California, Berkeley.
Each student will be assigned a mentor to guide them throughout the project. This EUV REU program will provide students with a unique opportunity designed for them to better understand EUV science and technology and to become involved in groundbreaking EUV-related research that is technically and scientifically challenging, and highly interdisciplinary.
Participants will be provided with a $5000 stipend, housing, and some meals.
