Description 
The primary purpose of our REU program is to provide an authentic research experience to undergraduate students with limited access to research at their home institution. The REU program is open to all undergraduate students that meet the qualifications, but an emphasis will be placed on admitting students from community colleges and underrepresented minorities. Projects involving REU students at Western Washington University are available in four main fields of study (synthetic chemistry, biochemistry, materials chemistry and computational chemistry). There are 3-5 faculty members in each of these categories, which are listed on our website. In addition to being heavily involved in a research project, REU participants will take part in other activities, including a series of weekly professional development workshops, field trips to sites of local interest, and a final symposium/poster session.
Qualifications 
Must be US citizens or permanent residents; not be graduating before the summer 2018; be a full-time student; be available for full-time research work (minimum of Monday-Friday, 9:00 am-5:00 pm) from June 25 - August 31, 2018; be prepared to live on-campus for the duration of the program.
