The Department of Biomedical Informatics is part of the National Science Foundation’s Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. The program is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are undergraduates majoring in computer science or informatics, or a related field and have a GPA > 3.0/4.0. Applicants must have completed at least their freshman year. Potential students submit an application form, unofficial transcript, one letter of recommendation and a 1-2 page personal statement that provides:
· their research interest(s),
· their previous research experiences, and
· any coursework relevant to their research interests.
The Program usually runs from the end of May through the first week of August. Participating students receive a stipend plus meals for participants. For students not living within commuting distance of the campus, shared dormitory and travel costs are available.
