REU: Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Until we receive notice of further NSF Funding, we will not be processing any applications. Thank you for your interest in the Kansas State University Department of Chemistry. Please check back for further projects.



The Research Environment The Department of Chemistry at KSU has had a strong record of undergraduate participation in research through the NSF sponsored REU program (53 students over eight years) and through summer exchange programs with the United Kingdom, France, Mexico and Germany (> 28 since 1998, ~ 70 total).  In addition, 79 undergraduate students (chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and chemical engineering majors) have enrolled in research in the department since 2004.  In the past decade, the Chemistry Department has produced eight Goldwater Scholars, one Rhodes Scholar, two Howard Hughes Scholars, three National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship awardees and two Fulbright Student Scholars among our undergraduates.  These international, REU, and KSU students have interacted with each other as well as with our graduate students and postdoctoral research associates to provide a unique learning and teaching environment that enriches many of the faculty’s research programs.
