Purdue REU - Application for Summer 2013
A complete application to the Purdue REU Program will include the following:
- A completed online application. You should be able to complete part of the application form, save it, and then return later to finish (if using the same IP address). However, in some situations this feature may not work. Especially if you are working on a public computer, we strongly recommend preparation of some application materials (including the answers to two essay questions) first, so you can complete the application process in one sitting. To assist in this preparation, a summary of the application questions is available.
- Two letters of recommendation, sent directly from the letter writers. The most helpful recommendation letters will address the applicant's academic and professional skills, attributes, and potential, and preferably come from an individual who can speak to those professional and/or academic skills (i.e., a professor, instructor, advisor, employer, etc.)
We would prefer electronic mail submission of the letters of recommendation to email@example.com -- however, if this is impossible, we will also accept materials sent by regular mail, to:
Dr. Stephen Hoffmann
Potter Engineering Center, room 322
500 Central Drive
West Lafayette, IN 47907
You will receive confirmation of the receipt of your online application, and when both letters of recommendation have been received. Any questions about the completeness of your application file can be addressed to Dr. Stephen Hoffmann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All application materials are due by Wednesday, February 1, 2013. Early decisions may be made for completed applications received prior to that date.
