We are now accepting applications for the Summer 2016 REU program - Complexity Across Disciplines (CAD). We welcome applications from current undergraduate students with strong interests in mathematics, science, technology, or engineering.  We encourage applications from students who are also members of a group underrepresented in STEM fields (e.g. women, African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, persons with disabilities) or who are enrolled in a minority, women's, or non-doctoral institution. The 2016 REU program will awardup to nine NSF fellowships. We welcome foreign undergraduates attending a US educational institution and who have funding from other sources to also apply to our program. 

Applicants must not yet have graduated with an undergraduate degree at the time of the REU. Only U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States and its possessions are eligible for fellowships from the National Science Foundation. We welcome foreign undergraduates attending a US educational institution and who have funding from other sources to also apply to our program.
