Summer REU's (Research Experiences for Undergrads)

Vic Reiner

I started mentoring REUs in Summer of 2000, and since 2005 have been co-mentoring them with various
of my combinatorial colleagues, Gregg Musiker, Pavlo Pylyavskyy and, Dennis Stanton.

Upcoming REU info

Our 13th annual REU program in combinatorics will be held in the summer of 2015, at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.
We expect at least 10 participants to spend 8 weeks in residence between June 01, 2015 and July 24, 2015.
The application deadline is Saturday, February 14, 2015.
Applications are submitted through the MathPrograms listing, which lists the necessary application materials.

The REU coordinator for Summer 2015 is Pasha Pylyavskyy.
Here are answers to some frequently asked REU questions.
