Criteria for selection in no particular order

  • Academic record;
  • Courses taken;
  • Previous research experience (some experience is good, too much is bad);
  • Self identification as a female, underrepresented minority, or physically challenged participant;
  • Potential for this REU to "add value" to your background;
  • Strength of letters of recommendation;
  • Nature of statement of purpose (last question on form);
  • Willingness to present and publish work done;
  • Evidence of work in a team environment (attach a resume if you have one!!).

It is preferred to assemble REU teams that contain students from a variety of schools. This diversity adds great value to the experience. Only four times in 24 years there have been two students from the same school during the same year.
