Abstract / Description: 

Electrical Engineering REU 2021 Student Application

This is a full-time, ten-week summer internship. For *EE REU 2021*, the program will run from *6/21/21-8/27/21*. With the advisement of an EE department faculty advisor and a graduate student mentor or Research Associate, REU interns will have the opportunity to not only conduct research, but also gain valuable experience in professional networking, project presentation, and most importantly, have fun doing it. The program provides participants with a stipend (amount TBD).

Are you eligible?
Students must declare EE as their undergraduate major if they participate in REU. With the exception of EE co-terms, in order to be eligible, students may not be seniors when they apply. In the event the number of applicants exceeds the number of available project positions, preference will be given to first time participants. Stanford internally funds the REU Program and as such, it is open to Stanford undergraduate students only. If you are not a Stanford student, please refer to Stanford's Office of Science Outreach <> for additional research opportunities. Students are required to participate for the full 10 week program.
