If you have not been contacted regarding your application status please consider applying for the 2018 CCMR REU Program (more information will be available December 2017).


The Cornell Center for Materials Research is offering a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in 2017. Students will have the opportunity to work directly with faculty on interdisciplinary materials research projects involving chemistry, physics, materials science, and engineering disciplines. Students will also participate in an organized program of lectures, laboratory visits and a variety of recreational activities.

The 10-week program takes place on Cornell’s Ithaca campus and includes: a stipend valued at $4,400; housing in a Cornell University dorm; and additional travel funds for nonCU students.

  • REU is open to current undergraduates who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
  • Selection is based on academic standing and faculty recommendations.
  • Minority and female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
  • All chemistry, physics, and engineering majors are welcome to apply.
  • Housing is provided; meals are not included.
  • The CCMR REU Program uses a rolling admission process. The earlier your application is completed, the better your chance for acceptance.

Support for the REU program is provided by the NSF MRSEC program (DMR-1120296) and the REU Site program (DMR-1063059).

Please note: the REU application is hosted on a third-party site.

If you have any questions regarding the REU program, please contact ccmr_reu@cornell.edu.
