REU 2003

REU 2005


This summer REU program will take place on the campus of Mississippi State University during June 9-August 7, 2004. It targets undergraduate US citizens or permanent residents who will complete their sophomore or junior year by June 2004. Students who have background in multivariable calculus, ordinary differential equations, and linear algebra prior to the start of the summer program are eligible to apply. Women, students from underrepresented groups, community college students, students from regions and institutions with limited research opportunities are particularly encouraged to apply. The participants are expected to devote their time fully to this summer research program, and they should not simultaneously be engaged in any other academic coursework or in jobs during the program.

The primary funding for our REU summer program comes from the National Science Foundation (NSF). According to the NSF eligibility criteria, ``undergraduate student participants supported with NSF funds in REU Site projects must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An undergraduate student is a student who is enrolled in a degree program (part-time or full-time) leading to a baccalaureate or associates degree. Students who are transferring from one institution to another and are enrolled at neither institution during the intervening summer may participate. High school graduates who have not yet enrolled and students who have received their bachelor's degrees and are no longer enrolled as undergraduates generally are not eligible. For REU Site projects, a significant fraction of the student participants should come from outside the host institution."
