In this section please also comment whether you would be interested in research related to wave propagation or in research related to population dynamics in our summer REU program.

Please ask two professors or other evaluators who are familiar with your work to send us reference letters on behalf of your application. Such letters usually comment on the applicant's mathematical and scientific knowledge, maturity, written and oral communication skills, computer skills, work habits, creativity, scientific curiosity, ability to follow directions, ability to work with others, overall ability to perform research, any strengths or weaknesses, and suitability to participate in a summer REU program.

In the space below, you may put any addional comments about yourself, mention some of your strengths and weaknesses, and let us know if you have any special needs. It is among the goals of the National Science Foundation to increase efforts to attract members of underrepresented groups (women, minorities, and persons with disabilities) into research and also to involve students from institutions with limited research programs; if you wish, you may specify any such groups you are a member of.



   

As soon as your application is complete (i.e. after the arrival of all of the resume, transcripts, two recommendation letters, and this online application) you will be notified, by e-mail, of its completion. Thank you for applying to our REU program!
