Research Experience for Undergraduate program (REU)
The Whitney Lab is not running an REU program in 2022. Information about a possible program in summer 2023 will likely be available in February 2023.
The Whitney Laboratory Research Experience for Undergraduate program (REU), funded by the National Science Foundation, offers an exceptional opportunity for the motivated undergraduate to participate in scientific research. If you are serious about science but have never had the opportunity to perform work as a scientist, then this program is for you.
In cooperation with a faculty supervisor, students choose a project that fits both their interests and ongoing investigations of the Lab and that can be completed within the ten-week training period during the summer.
The Whitney Laboratory's REU program has been running for more than 30 years. The program begain in 1987 by Dr. Barbara Battelle who ran the program for many years. There are more than 250 alumni of our program who have went on to a range of occupations including many who have continued in the field of scientific research.
