February 1, 2017 – Application deadline for REU in Environmental/Green Chemistry – Dept. of Chemistry & Biochemistry, South Dakota State University
Environmental and Green Chemistry span a chemical continuum from natural to industrial processes.  South Dakota State University, Black Hills State University (BHSU), and Northern State University (NSU) have established a three-year REU Site focused on environmental and green materials chemistry that provides 10 students per year with multi-disciplinary research experiences aligned with Green Chemistry Principles 3, 5, 6, and 9 and the chemistry of natural environments.  Interactions with the project’s nine faculty mentors enable student participants to undertake research in catalysis/less hazardous synthesis, energy efficiency/safer solvents, and the environmental chemistry of natural systems.  An integrated program of research, professional and career development, and student activities is facilitated by the state-of-the-art, internet-based communication technology known as the “Access Grid”. 
Applications for the REU Site in Environmental/Green Chemistry Summer 2017 student cohort can be submitted by clicking on the link above that will take you to the application page. Review of applications begins February 1st and continues until all positions are filled. Please note that in addition to the information requested by the application form you will need to arrange for two letters of recommendation from 2 professors and a copy of your college transcript (an unofficial transcript is acceptable).
February 15, 2017 –  REU Program Summer Research – Texas A&M
The REU summer research program focuses on interdisciplinary projects in biological, green, and materials chemistry. In our program, students become full members of a research group, carrying out fundamental research on topics that span the chemical sciences.
Application Window: December 15, 2016 – February 15, 2017
Program Dates: May 30 – August 4, 2017
March 1, 2017 – REU Washington State University
The Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites (CB2), is establishing a summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) designed to provide undergraduate students a chance to participate in industry-directed fundamental research opportunities in the fields of bioplastics and biocomposites. The students will gain hands-on experience with synthesis, processing, and characterization of biobased plastics and composite materials.
During the program, the students will participate in a series of bioplastics short courses, have responsibility for an independent research project performed with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, and engage with leading industry experts from the Industrial Advisory Board of the CB2. Applications Due March 1, 2017.
