2022 LEAP Summer REU Program


LEAP’s 2022 REU program offers summer undergraduate research experiences (SUREs) on synergistic innovations in data science and climate science. The REU Program is presented in partnership with the Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science (SOARS) program at UCAR. The Program hosts undergraduate researchers and offers a wide array of enrichment learning and networking opportunities.

We invite students from groups underrepresented in the STEM discipline in terms of race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic background, family history of post-baccalaureate opportunity, gender identity and gender expression, disability, or military service to apply.
