Summer 2020

It's easy to apply!  Simply follow these steps:

1. Download a reference form (as a Word document), fill out the top part, and then have two references, preferably professors, complete the letter of recommendation and return it directly to us at:

2. Submit Transcripts - You may e-mail your transcript to as long as there is no full or partial SSN visible.  If any part of the SSN is visible on the transcript, you must obscure it by marking through it with a marker before scanning. If it is already digital, use an image editing program to obscure it by covering it with a black box or blurring it out. If you send a transcript containing any part of your SSN, you do so at your own peril. If your transcript does contain a full or partial SSN, and you are not able to obscure it, the only option is to mail a hard copy to: REU coordinator, University of Georgia, Department of Microbiology, 527 Biological Sciences Building, Athens, GA, 30602

3. Use this link to complete the ONLINE APPLICATION FORM. You will see a confirmation page after successful submission of your application page.

For full consideration, applications are requested before February 14, 2020.
