The LAKES REU program is on HIATUS for Summer 2021 due to COVID-19 travel and safety restrictions and is not accepting applications at this time.

We plan to return for summer 2022 when COVID-19 conditions improve to allow continuation of our work. Please watch this space in fall 2021 for updated application details.

LAKES REU is a multi-disciplinary research undergraduate experience that focuses research effort on the waterways of the Red Cedar Watershed. / UW-Stout
