Program Details


The KU Chemistry REU program offers participants many research opportunities.

Key Components

Key components of this program are career enhancement and educational activities that encourage and prepare the students for graduate studies and careers in emerging and interdisciplinary areas of the chemical sciences (the current focus is sustainability in chemistry).  Close interactions between the participants and their faculty, graduate student, and postdoctoral mentors provide guidance and feedback throughout the program and beyond.  In addition, the students develop important skills for the oral and written presentation of their research accomplishments and are encouraged to present their REU outcomes at national or regional scientific meetings.

Each participant in the KU Chemistry REU Program receives a competitive stipend plus full room and board and a travel allowance, a total value of approximately $8800.
