REU Program Application Instructions

Review of applications will begin January 31

DIMACS is in the process of updating the online application form to make it easier to process your REU application. This new application form page should be ready and activated by the first or second week of December. We are interested in receiving your application, but we ask that you wait and re-visit the site, once the new application form webpage is activated, to submit your application materials. Until then, please work on preparing your personal statement, letter of recommendation, and unofficial transcripts so that you are ready to upload them once the new webpage is available. The questions on the form will be exactly the same as they appear on the current application web-form. If you have any questions, please contact
