We are so pleased you have decided to apply to the Santa Fe Institute REU program. If you need any help during the application process or have questions about SFI we are happy to help. Please read all the information about our REU program located on our site before you begin the application process.
The Culture and Community of SFI:
We aim to give our students the intellectual freedom and support that allows them to become the next leaders in science. Students in SFI's REU program get to work one-on-one with some of the top minds in science on some of the biggest questions that face us today. Students become an integral part of the SFI community during their time in Santa Fe.
To learn more about the research that we do at SFI, visit our website and read the profiles of our Resident Faculty and Postdocs.
The Program Format:
The program consists of one-on-one work with an SFI faculty or postdoctoral mentor. Students work on an individual research project crafted together with their mentors. Tutorials are offered to catch students up to speed on some technical and practical skills, including a variety of programming languages, mathematical concepts, and practical skills such as how to give a talk, write a science research paper, write a grant proposal, or apply to graduate school. During the final week of the program, students give short presentations to the SFI community and produce a final paper in collaboration with their mentor. In recent experience, these papers are often publishable in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
- For the purposes of this program, an undergraduate student is a student who is enrolled in a degree program (part-time or full-time) leading to a baccalaureate or associate degree.
- Students transferring from one institution to another who are enrolled at neither institution during the intervening summer may participate.
- College seniors graduating in Spring/Summer 2020 are not eligible.
- High school graduates who have been accepted at an undergraduate institution but who have not yet started their undergraduate study are eligible to apply.
