Kent State University Undergraduate Summer Research Opportunity

Published 1/1/2022

The National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program at Kent State University supports undergraduate student research in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and Liquid Crystal Institute research laboratories. Students in the program work closely with the faculty and other researchers on exciting projects in the areas of liquid crystals, materials (biomaterials & nanomaterials), and biological membranes.

In addition to working in the lab, participants of the REU program are also given the opportunity to take part in several social events, ranging from sporting and cultural events to canoe trips.

To be eligible for the NSF-funded REU program, you must be a US citizen or permanent resident. Current Kent State University students in good standing are not required to meet the citizenship requirement for the program.

Students should be 18 or older by the start of the program and have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Review of applications will begin March 1st and will continue until all positions are filled.
