Applications for Summer 2024 will be open in November, 2023

2024 IISAGE Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program dates: TBA

All application materials must be submitted online. In addition, you must attach the following three documents:  

  • Personal Statement – A 600-word essay (pasted into the application form) describing your interests and career goals and outlining your goals for participating in this program. Please identify a specific IISAGE lab from one of our 8 participating institutes (see here) for your research training and explain your choice.
  • Academic Transcript – Please provide an unofficial academic transcript that demonstrates your academic performance.
  • Resume – Please submit a comprehensive resume that outlines your educational qualifications, prior research experience, academic achievements, and any other relevant extracurricular activities or accomplishments.

You are also required to submit the name and contact information for a reference (e.g., research mentor, academic advisor, instructor) that can speak to your motivation, abilities, and potential. IISAGE will contact this reference to request a recommendation letter. Once we have received your application, transcript, resume, and recommendation, we will begin the review/selection process.


For additional program information, please direct your questions to our program manager Jordan Favors.
