Undergraduates are invited to apply for a ten-week research program hosted by Georgia Tech School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS).during Summer 2023.
Working under the supervision of a faculty member or research scientist, participants will focus on a single research project but also gain a broad perspective on research in earth and atmospheric sciences by participating in the dynamic research environment. This interdisciplinary REU program has projects spanning topics related to the geosciences, planetary science, atmospheric sciences, oceanography, and climate science. In addition to full time research, undergraduate researchers will participate in a number of professional development activities, seminars with faculty and research scientists, presentation and research poster symposiums, and social activities with other summer REU students.
Participants will receive a stipend of $6,000, travel allowances, and apartment-style housing on the Georgia Tech campus. Participants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. and currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program at a U.S. college or university (this includes remaining enrolled within an undergraduate degree program throughout the duration of the REU program). Note that students attending colleges of Universities outside of the U.S. are eligible if they are U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S.
