Building Resilient Communities
Due to restrictions on activities under OSU’s COVID-19 resumption plan, this REU program has been cancelled for 2020. We plan to offer the program in 2021.
Oregon State University is pleased to announce summer internships for undergraduate students on the topic of resilience. The Engineering for Bouncing Back (EBB), Clean Water Initiative (CWI) and Cascadia Lifelines Program (CLiP) 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.
