The REU program will also cover travel expenses for participants and provide partial support to attend the Annual American Geophysical Union Meeting in December 2015. Applicants should be full-time, undergraduate students with a GPA of 2.5 or better and majoring in science, technology, engineering, or mathematical (STEM) fields. Students must be US citizens or green card holders in order to be considered for this program. Rising sophomores, women and minorities, and students from small institutions are encouraged to apply.
