Application Information








Update 4/16/18: The selection committee met today and I have made 12 of what should be 14 offers, either by phone or email or both. The two additional slots will be offered soon. Each student is given a week to decide whether to formally accept/decline.


2018 Project Descriptions.


Program Flyers: Version 1, Version 2.


Eligibility: Applicants must be U.S. citizens or green card holders, and must be pursuing an undergraduate degree through the summer of 2018.

Notes: NSF requests that REU sites select at least half of their participants from schools where research opportunities are limited, and that includes 2-year colleges. University, college, and community college students interested in a weather-related career by pursuing a bachelors degree in science, math, computer science, or, in our case social science, are encouraged to apply. Aspiring science teachers are also encouraged to apply. Applications from women and minorities are particularly encouraged.

The application includes creating a login so that you can look over the requirements and then revisit as needed to complete the application. Be sure your transcript includes your fall 2017 grades.

A final note: NSF funds many REUs, and you can apply to more than one. To find other programs, select one of the disciplinary areas (we're listed under Atmospheric Science) or search with keywords here: https://www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/reu_search.jsp New programs typically learn about their funding over the wintertime, but don't necessarily solicit applications that spring. Some existing programs (like this one) receive their next year of funding one to two months after the Federal budget has been approved by Congress and signed by the President. We are in that situation this year, so our summer 2018 program is contingent on that process happening first.


Program details:

The 2018 program runs from May 21 - July 31.

  • You receive a stipend: $5,000. These funds are distributed at the end of May, June, July, in proporation to how many weeks of the program occurred in that month. These funds are considered a scholarship / fellowship and could be taxable, depending on your overall tax situation.
