Program for Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
at the Hudson Institute of Mineralogy

The Institute wishes to sponsor ten week summer programs for undergraduate students in applied mineralogy and geology topics, pending NSF support. Undergraduates and potential adjunct faculty members interested in participating should contact the Institute directly. Directions for applying for the current program will be posted here in if funding has been granted; there will be no application fees, and fifteen (15) positions will be available to U.S. citizens only, with modest stipends being paid to undergraduate participants. Non-U.S. citizens may apply but must fund their participation externally.

The research program will be conducted at the sites of the collaborating partners, each according to the research topic of the student and all near the field area of the Franklin Marble. The research will be in mineralogy and the research will involve the application of mineralogical and chemical techniques in answering laboratory problems or field problems in geology. The program is designed to accommodate 15 students in a 10-week summer REU program. The REU program will have a scientific ethics component.

The Hudson Institute of Mineralogy Collaboration REU Project is a proposed new NSF REU site established for providing research experiences to undergraduate students wishing to explore pure and/or applied mineralogy. The project, the Franklin Ore Deposit and Marble Survey, will explore the mineralogical inhomogeneity of the Franklin Marble which outcrops near the collaborating partners' campuses. The sponsoring organization is the Hudson Institute of Mineralogy. The REU program will work in collaboration with the Franklin Mineral Museum, Thomas S. Warren Museum of Fluorescence and Sterling Hill Mining Museum.
