In summer 2013, Virginia Tech will offer a unique interdisciplinary NSF-funded REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program specifically designed for students from Virginia community colleges and 4-year institutions around the country. The program brings scholars together from the colleges of Engineering, Liberal Arts and Human Sciences, and Science to study the topic of societal violence. Students will be paid a $5,000 stipend, and provided travel, freehousing and meals on our campus for 10 weeks from May 28 to August 2.

The application deadline is January 25, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. For additional information
