A complete application includes:
* The electronic application form (below)
* Two letters of recommendation. It is STRONGLY PREFERRED that letters of recommendation be sent electronically (as an email attachment or in the body of an email) directly from the referee to the REU program coordinator (letters should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org, with the applicant's name in the subject line). However, letters of recommendation can also be mailed. If letters are mailed, the referee should place the letter in a signed, sealed envelope.
* An academic transcript, preferably submitted electronically from your Registrars office. An unofficial (non-sealed) transcript is okay, but unofficial transcripts must come from the Registrar's Office of your undergraduate institution; you CAN NOT type out your transcript yourself. Transcripts should be sent to email@example.com or mailed to the address below. If you are also mailing letters of recommendation, place transcript and letters of recommendation in a single envelope.
Evaluations will begin on Friday, February 26th, 2016, but applications will be accepted after that date until we have chosen all of our participants.
NB: You must be
currently enrolled at an undergraduate
institution to be eligible for the REU program (i.e. you cannot have
graduated this semester).
Send letters of recommendation and transcript to:
(if via snail mail:)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Applicants must be in adequate physical condition to
live at the Station's elevation (9500 feet) and to participate in hikes
and activities at this elevation. For nearly all students, there are no
difficulties beyond needing a few days of acclimation. If you have a
history of heart or lung problems, or have other physical conditions
which might limit your ability to participate, you may wish to consult
with your physician before applying.
