Summer REUs (Research Experiences for Undergrads)

Vic Reiner

I started mentoring REUs in Summer of 2000, and since 2005 have been co-mentoring them with various
of my combinatorial and algebraic colleagues, Christine Berkesch, Ben Brubaker, Gregg Musiker, Pavlo Pylyavskyy, Dennis Stanton.

Our 18th annual REU program in combinatorics is happening right now for 8 weeks this summer, June 3 - July 26, 2019.
The REU coordinator for Summer 2019 is Christine Berkesch.
Here are answers to some frequently asked REU questions.

Applications were submitted through MathPrograms here.
The application deadline wass February 13, 2019.
Students were not required to accept or decline prior to the agreed-upon common REU response deadline of March 8.
