The REU summer program will emphasize engaged, community-based research while also preparing students for future careers. If you are a student with a passion for community-based research, a strong work ethic, an interest in living in Atlanta for 7 weeks, and a desire to learn more about all aspects of research, this is the program for you! Working with faculty mentors in one of three research tracks, selected undergraduates will engage in community-based research and fieldwork to quantitatively and qualitatively examine neighborhood change, property markets, social geographies, air and soil quality, urban green spaces, and neighborhood visioning in partnership with neighborhood residents and community groups in Atlanta, Georgia. Each REU student will receive a competitive funding package including: a $3000 stipend, up to $250 in travel support to/from Atlanta, up to $750 for conference presentations, free room and most meals at GSU, and 3 required texts. The 2013 CSAW REU Site runs from Monday, June 10, 2013 through Thursday, July 25, 2013. The 2013 CSAW REU program application deadline is Friday, March 1, 2013 at 5 PM EST.
