Update 3/21: The NWC REU program is now set for 2017. Thank you to all who were interested and applied! I sent notification emails today.
Update 3/11: Keep in mind that the accept/decline process can take up to a couple of weeks to complete. Each year at least one, and usually few to several initial offers are declined. Also, be aware that a few REU programs are still collecting applications, like this one is until March 22: http://www.geotree.uni.edu/en/reu/home/. Use the NSF site search link below to look for programs. If you are interested in climate change, consider looking at some of the marine programs, or searching on climate as a keyword: https://www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/reu_search.jsp
Update 3/9: The first round of offers have gone out. Those initially selected have been given until about March 15 to accept/decline. Offers will continue until all 12 slots are filled. This year was incredibly difficult, with 105 complete applications.
Update 3/8: The selection committee was not able to finish selection today. This year we tried a new way of reviewing applications that took longer than we expected. We will be meeting again tomorrow to finish.
Update 3/1: The selection committee will meet on Wednesday, March 8. Good luck, everyone!
Update 2/16: I am still downloading and sorting the files. Please have patience regarding my ability to answer your questions about whether your application is complete.
Update 2/9: Thank you to all who applied! I should be receiving the uploaded files within a couple of days. After that I can answer questions about whether your application is complete. Keep in mind that references and transcripts will still be accepted until Wednesday, February 15. Good luck to all who applied! We hope to hold selection by the end of February or beginning of March. I'll put updates here.
