Description 
ReNUWIt’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program engages undergraduate students in ReNUWIt faculty’s research labs, under the mentorship of ReNUWIt post-docs and graduate students. Participants learn laboratory/field techniques, are immersed in ReNUWIt’s collaborative and interdisciplinary culture, and conduct meaningful research in state-of-the-art facilities. REU participants also interact directly with ReNUWIt faculty and peers, receive professional development training, and experience ReNUWIt’s systems-level approach to addressing the nation’s water issues. Additional program requirements include meetings, oral presentations, a short written report, and summary slides and/or posters.
Qualifications 
U.S. citizen or permanent resident; graduating no earlier than December 2018; preference to students from primarily undergraduate institutions and non-ReNUWIt campuses; students from groups traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering programs are encouraged to apply.
