Registration in Directed Studies (Chem 2094 or 4094) can be
used to satisfy various requirements depending on the college
you are enrolled in. There is no pay connected with this
work, but it gives students excellent laboratory experience.
Chemistry Summer Research Program is designed
to encourage current majors in chemistry at the University
of Minnesota to learn more about research in chemistry and
provide them with the opportunity to work in a lab under
the direction of a faculty member.
The Department of Chemistry of the University
of Minnesota sponsors a summer research program for outstanding
undergraduate students. The Lando/NSF Chemistry
Summer Research Program encourages students in the chemical
sciences to learn more about research in chemistry and provide
them with the opportunity to work in a lab under the direction
of a faculty member. Currently support for this program comes
from a combination of University and National Science Foundation
(NSF-REU) sources. Applications are accepted from those presently
in their sophomore or junior year of undergraduate study in
chemistry or closely related fields. Chemistry Summer Research
Fellows will be selected in a national competition.
U of MN-TC Chemistry majors should not apply for the Lando
but should apply instead for the Heisig/Gleysteen
Summer Research Program.
University of Minnesota's Materials Research Science and Engineering
Center (UMN MRSEC) is an innovative program that
fosters a creative, interdisciplinary approach to materials
research, interlocking faculty and students from seven departments
in a pursuit that addresses the meticulous control of composition,
structure, and properties in advanced materials. Research
Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) fellowships are awarded
to undergraduates from four-year colleges and universities
for participation in a ten-week summer program designed to
provide unique research experiences, professional development,
and increased awareness of materials science and engineering.
Research Opportunities Program is
a program allowing University of Minnesota students to work
in conjunction with faculty on faculty research. Financial
awards to undergraduates for research, scholarly, or creative
projects include stipends and/or expense allowances. Particular
attention should be paid to the deadlines for applications.
