Hrs / Week
Early admission review of completed applications will proceed from Nov. 28-Dec. 28, 2016. Regular review will begin Feb. 3, 2017 and end upon all spots being filled.
Selected participants will work on research projects that address fundamental questions related to the chemistry of health and catalysis in chemistry. Projects focus on the potential of research to benefit society both directly and indirectly in the fields of health care, forensics/criminology, energy, sustainability, and transportation.
Undergraduates who (i) are majoring in chemistry or biochemistry (pre-majors also considered), (ii) are citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the U.S. or its territories, and (iii) are interested in a research and training experience akin to that of a graduate student are encouraged to apply. Students from groups underrepresented within their disciplines (e.g., women, underrepresented minorities, students with disabilities), veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, and students from socioeconomically depressed regions (e.g., Appalachia) are especially encouraged to apply to these programs.
