Summer REU Program

Welcome! The Department of Chemistry at Colorado State University has hosted an NSF-sponsored undergraduate research program in chemistry for the last 21 summers. Our unique summer experience combines an enviable environment with access to world-class researchers working in all areas of chemistry, at length scales ranging from molecules to extended materials. The links at right provide more information about past offerings of the program.

January 9, 2015: We are waiting for word from NSF on the grant renewal. We’ll update this page when this summer’s plan is confirmed. If you’d like to get direct updates, please send a request to Kathy Lucas ( and we’ll get you on the list.
