I am contacting you to inform you of a wonderful opportunity for your undergraduate students. Portland State University’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program has been a successful NSF-funded training program since its advent in 2001.This REU program, which includes a wide range of scientific departments, includes instruction on SEM and FIB microscopes and eight weeks of paid lab work alongside one of PSU’s professors. It takes place over the summer, from June 18, 2018 to August 10, 2018.
The application on our website has just recently opened, and will remain open until March 5, 2018. This program has an emphasis on women, minorities, veterans, and nontraditional students, though all applicants will be considered and are encouraged to apply.
For more information, please visit our website or see the attached flyer, which can be distributed to any students you think may be interested.
Thank you for your time, and we hope to see some of your students apply! If you have any further questions, you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
