We regret to inform you that we are unable to run our program this summer due to restrictions put in place by the on-going global pandemic. We appreciate your interest and hope that, if able, you will apply again for next summer's program.
The Environmental Engineering Solutions for Pollution Prevention Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) promotes air and water pollution projects that are relevant to not only Western New York, but across the globe.
The Environmental Engineering Solutions for Pollution Prevention REU at the University at Buffalo is a 10-week summer program, with projects focusing on laboratory and/or field experimentation in three themed areas:
Participants are paired with a faculty research mentor to conduct transformative air and/or water pollution research. Weekly group meetings of the REU cohort foster student-to-student communication via workshops and networking opportunities. A Research Symposium, as well as support for post-REU conference presentations and publications, provides students opportunities to hone their communication skills.
Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions and be enrolled as undergraduate students in a college program through Fall 2021. Students from under-represented minority groups and non-research focused institutions are strongly encouraged to apply.
2021 REU applications are now closed.
