Overview of the 2019 Summer Undergraduate Research Programs in the Department of Chemistry. Summer 2019 application CLOSED on Feb 15, 2019.


Life Science bridgeThe Department of Chemistry Summer Undergraduate Research Program gives undergraduate students opportunities to participate in frontier chemistry research at a major research facility.

The National Science Foundation funded Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program focuses on catalysis and dynamics. You can perform research with the listed participating faculty on any of the topics of the REU program: we match your interests with those of current faculty.

The 3M Fellowship program provides funding for students to conduct research in ANY research group in the department, including faculty listed on this site. We encourage you to consider the projects listed here and on the general research pages found on the chemistry web site.

Students work closely with a Penn State faculty member, together with graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in the research group.

Applications for summer 2019 will open December 1, 2018.
