CUR Physics and Astronomy REU Reference Letter

The research mentors participating in the CUR Physics and Astronomy REU program hope to populate this REU program with undergraduates who exhibit a wide range of research skills, from students for whom this will be their first research experience to those who have already completed a research project.

Students can be first-year undergraduates through super-seniors with applications from community colleges encouraged. As such, we hope you will help us evaluate the applicant's research or potential research skills.

We strongly suggest reviewing this online form and prepare your responses to the questions found using a text editor (e.g. Word).  When finished developing your responses to all questions, cut and paste all responses into the online form at one time.  Your responses cannot be saved on our system for another time.

NOTE TO THOSE PROVIDING REFERENCES: The student who has asked you to provide a reference has the ability to waive or not waive their right to see the evaluation you provide.  This is part of the student's application form.  When the student submits their application, you should receive an e-mail indicating their submission along with whether or not rights have been waived.  If you are concerned about this, we recommend waiting until you receive this confirmation e-mail so that you know whether they have waived or not waived their right to see the evaluation you provide.  

 

The information you provide will be due by February 27, 2015. If you have any questions about this or any other part of the application process, please feel free to contact Dr. Michael Jackson (jacksonm@cwu.edu).
