Building Resilient Communities
The REU site is now open and will be conducted for the period June 13- Aug 19, 2022! Successful applicants are expected to follow COVID-19 Safety and Success policy at Oregon State University.
Oregon State University is pleased to announce summer internships for undergraduate students on the topic of resilience. The Engineering for Bouncing Back (EBB) and Clean Water Initiative (CWI) programs will provide research experiences for undergraduates (REU) in hand-on and interdisciplinary research on building resilient communities.
During the ten-week program, students will work with a faculty mentor and graduate student on a specific project and develop research skills to increase graduate school opportunities. In addition, students will participate in cohort-building activities such as field trips to communities facing unique challenges in resilience and film nights focused on community resilience stories. Professional development activities include weekly skill-building workshops and panels, a 10-page project report, and a final program symposium.
Highly motivated undergraduate students are encouraged to apply.
