Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret to inform all applicants that School of Chemistry and Biochemistry’s summer FAST REU program at Georgia Tech this summer will be cancelled. This is disappointing for all of us, but necessary to ensure the safety for all involved. Our program offers substantial lab and professional development activities and a cohort experience that we felt could not be executed remotely. We intend to offer the program again next summer. If this fits your plans please consider applying for the 2021 FAST REU.  If you will be graduating by May 2021, please consider applying to Georgia Tech for graduate school.  Details about our graduate application can be found here: https://chemistry.gatech.edu/academics/prospective-graduates

Chemistry and Biochemistry undergraduate majors who are US citizens or Permanent Residents (from Colleges and Universities outside of Georgia Tech) are invited to apply for a ten-week (Sunday, May 17- Friday, July 24, 2020) research program. Program participants will receive a stipend of $5,000, a travel allowance, and housing. Participants supported must be US citizens or permanent residents of the US. Funding is pending support provided by the National Science Found and 3M Corporation.

REU students carry out a research project under the direction of a faculty member in School of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Georgia Tech. Projects are available in analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, physical, and polymer chemistry with a number of projects involving interdiscplinary research perspectives. Contributions by undergraduate participants often result in publication of papers in the peer-reviewed literature with the student listed as an author.  In addition to full time research, students participate in a number of professional development seminars, site visits to scientific companies/government labs, and social activities with fellow students and other REU groups on the Georgia Tech campus.  

Students interested in a career in research are encouraged to apply (Using the "Application" link at the top of th page).  Please use the application tab above to apply to the Chemistry and Biochemistry REU Program at Georgia Tech. 

Students interested in specializations within chemistry and biochemistry or allied disciplines may also apply to the:
