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.

Update 3/23/16: We are in the process of making invitations to the program for summer 2016. We received >320 completed applications for ~15 slots (sponsored by NSF REU, C-CLEAR and the Fixman Summer Theory Program). We expect to finalize our roster around April 1. Updates will be posted here as we know more. For other inquiries please contact REU coordinator Elizabeth McCoy (
