Please Note: *The Chemistry REU program at JMU is not currently funded but there are still active research opportunities in the Department during the summer and throughout the academic year. Please contact individual faculty members for details.  Check back here for future updates on the Chemistry REU program.
Program: Through funding from the National Science Foundation and other agenices, the JMU Chemistry Department will again sponsor a summer Research Experience for Undergraduates. In this program, students will work under the direction of a professor and conduct full-time independent research. Research projects are available in all subject areas in chemistry depending upon availability of faculty members. Students will be introduced to library literature searching and gain "hands-on" experience using the various instruments in the department. Other aspects of the program include weekly seminars given by the participants and speakers from outside JMU. Social events will also be held as part of the program.
Dates: *
Stipend: Undergraduate students will receive a $4,200 scholarship stipend for full participation.
Accomodations: Students will be provided an opportunity for housing on the JMU campus at no cost to the participant.
Eligibility: Undergraduate students (current sophomores or juniors) who will graduate in December 2012 or later. Chemistry majors receive priority; others will be considered. Participants must be United States Citizens or permanent residents.  This site has a regional focus.  We are also interested in supporting deaf or hearing-impaired participants.
