The MMLI is excited to launch a Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign!

This provides students from populations underrepresented in STEM with an opportunity to explore careers in research at the interface of chemistry and artificial intelligence. During this 10-week program, students will build relationships with MMLI members, conduct graduate-level research, attend writing seminars, and present their project at the Illinois Summer Research Symposium.

Program Dates: May 30 – July 21, 2023

Successful applicants will be given a $4,000 stipend; housing and travel are provided.

Application Due Date: February 10, 2023

Please apply through the Big Ten Academic Alliance SROP application portal (select UIUC and chemistry + AI):
