1. Aquatic Chemical Ecology at Georgia Tech (ACE)
Aquatic Chemical Ecology (ACE) at Georgia Tech is a summer research program supported by the National Science Foundation REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program. ACE at Georgia Tech gives you the opportunity to perform exciting research with our faculty in the schools of Biology, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. You'll participate in research with one or more of our faculty, learn about careers in science and engineering, and see how scientists blend knowledge and skills from physics, chemistry and biology to investigate some of the most challenging problems in environmental sciences. We encourage applications from undergraduate students who are citizens or permanent residents of the U.S., especially attending universities other than Georgia Tech. The following three areas comprise the research activities covered by faculty in the Aquatic Chemical Ecology program:
Area 1. Biological and geochemical transformations of chemicals in aquatic ecosystems.
Area 2. Sensory biology and ecology of aquatic chemical communication.
Area 3. Ecological roles and consequences of chemicals in aquatic environments.
The Online Application Deadline is February 15th, 2014 at 5:00 PM Eastern. The application process requires you to complete the following:

2. Collaborative Research Experience for Undergraduates (CREU)
The Computing Research Association's Committee on the Status of Women in Computing Research (CRA-W) and the Coalition to Diversify Computing (CDC), are pleased to announce a program that encourages and supports undergraduate student research. The goal of this initiative is to increase the numbers of women and minorities who continue on to graduate school in computer science, computer engineering, and allied disciplines. The program, called Collaborative Research Experience for Undergraduates (CREU), is designed to provide positive research experiences for teams of undergraduates who will work during the academic year and, in some cases, the following summer at their home institutions (provided they haven't graduated before the summer).
Proposals Due: May 20, 2013
For eligibility/application/sample proposals visit the CRA-W webpage.
