Application Information







Announcing Summer 2017!

The 2017 program will be May 22 - July 28. Alternate dates are possible for students at schools following the quarter system. Here is a paper copy [PDF] of version #2, which only updated the application to include instructions to you and to references that we are online this year. Use the PDF to help you draft your essays and prepare your materials, then — when you are ready to — come back here to copy your essays and upload your materials: http://uresearch.rccc.ou.edu/portal/OU_REU_Application.

Update 1/12: I've heard of one person encountering an issue with the form though my test this morning worked okay. Please email me if you have any trouble and give as much detail as you can, including the day/time and what happened: dzaras@ou.edu. Also, I strongly suggest having a doc where you've written everything out so that you're just copying and pasting into the form. That'll save you time if you do encounter any issues.

Are you writing a reference letter for an applicant? Once they enter your name into the online form you will be sent an email with directions on how to upload a PDF of your letter. If that does not happen, you may email a PDF of the letter to: nwcreu@gmail.com.

Here are some important details for applicants:

You receive a stipend: $5,000 (these funds are considered a scholarship / fellowship awarded to you)
You also receive some subsistence: $500 (to help with food costs in first month)
We reimburse your travel to/from Norman up to $600
We pay what we can and reimburse the rest for one trip to a National Conference Travel, up to $1,500
We provide housing: in modern, furnished campus apartments, most likely Traditions Square. In that complex you have a private, locking bedroom in 4bed/2bath apartments.

What projects will be available?
The mentors are starting to come forward with topic areas and project ideas. Take a read: 2017 Project Descriptions

Who is eligible to apply?
You must be enrolled in a 2 or 4-yr undergraduate degree program through the summer of 2017 (not taking classes, but not yet graduated) and be a US citizen or permanent resident. You are eligible if finishing a 2-yr degree and starting a 4-yr degree program. Applications from women and minorities are particularly encouraged. The University of Oklahoma is an equal opportunity institution.

NSF requests that REU sites select at least half of their participants from schools where research opportunities are limited, and that includes 2-year institutions.

When will I know if I am accepted?
We will attempt to make offers by the last week of February or first week of March. This year we will follow NSF's new request to give students until March 15, 2017, to accept or decline an offer to participate in our program. This means the second wave of offers may not occur until around March 15.
