Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Application Information: DEADLINE EXTENDED

The Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center’s (TDLC) REU Site is an undergraduate research arm of the Center. The REU program is focused on training undergraduates to perform research at the highest level as part of the Center’s research mission of developing a new science of the temporal dynamics of learning.

In addition to the training students receive in the individual laboratories, the REU Site program will encourage and prepare students for continuation in graduate programs in the science of learning and related disciplines. A total of 8-12 undergraduate students will be admitted into the ten-month REU Program that begins in September of every year. At least one third of participating students are admitted from local, non-Ph.D. granting institutions.

Trainees receive a *Scholarship award stipend of $5,000, disbursed monthly ($555 per month) over the duration of the training program (9 months), as well as a $1,100 travel stipend to travel to a major academic conference and to a TDLC meeting outside of San Diego.

Trainees must make a commitment to conducting 10 hours of lab work per week, in addition to attending the monthly dinner seminars and presenting their projects to their REU peers.
