Applications for Summer Research Experience Being Accepted

The National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduate (REU) project is accepting applications for a summer program on the Dakota State University campus.

REU is a nine-week program offering undergraduate students from DSU and other institutions across the nation a competitive research experience in information assurance and security. The program will be sponsored by an expected award from the National Science Foundation (NSF).   

During the summers of 2010, 2011, and 2012, the program will host 9 students, three from DSU and six from other institutions to conduct research with active and experienced research faculty. The activities are designed to help students improve their ability to formulate and solve a research problem and increase their scientific and social communication skills.

Students will receive a total stipend of $4,140, reimbursement of travel expenses, paid housing and meals at DSU, and a free community center pass.
