Q. What are the dates for the Summer REU program at El Verde Field Station?
Some schools end their terms after our program begins. If you are accepted in the program, we will work with you to find the best solution, so you can start with us as soon as possible without compromising your academic year.
Q. About school transcripts. It is not clear to me whether or not the program requires an official transcript.
Q. Are letters of recommendation send via e-mail? or should a hard copy be sent through the mail as well?
Q. Would it be okay for me to submit a brief resume with the application materials?
Our school year is not officially over until after the first day of
your summer program. Would you still encourage me to apply for the REU?

be graduating in May. Am I still eligible for the internship?
Q. Is the program solely based on Research with the help of a mentor? Or are there classes involved as well?
Q. Would it be beneficial for me to email the professors who I would be interested in working?
