Opportunity Description

Scenes from the CNF REU programThe 2021 CNF REU App is Now Closed (Feb 18th)

(Please note that this program is not open to Cornell University students. The CNF REU Program is listed here for non-Cornell students and to support the application.)

During the summer of 2021, the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility (CNF) will sponsor a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program from June through August.

The undergraduates taking part in this ten-week programs will receive hands-on research experience. The projects are designed and supervised by faculty and technical staff. Interns then work with their assigned faculty and graduate students on their project, using the unique resources offered by each program. A convocation is held in August to allow interns the opportunity to present their work to their peers in a concise scientific presentation. Interns also must complete a written report, akin to a research paper, summarizing the findings of their research project. These reports are published and distributed to the interns and sites, the National Science Foundation (NSF), and many others.

Participants receive a $5,000 stipend, plus housing and reasonable travel expenses. Full participation in the ten-week program, convocation(s), final reporting, and program evaluation is mandatory.

Please read the Requirements (above left) carefully before starting your application to ensure you are eligible for this program.

We look forward to receiving your application materials!
