(for RET, 6 weeks during this period)

DETAILS:

I. CCT REU:
Interdisciplinary Research Experience in Computational Sciences
http://reu.cct.lsu.edu/

The Louisiana State U Center for Computation & Technology (CCT)
hosts a ten week Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
program where students work collaboratively on a wide variety of
computational science projects.

Each student receives a stipend of $5,000, free housing in
university dormitories, and up to $600 in travel expenses to
and from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Nine students will be selected.

Qualifications:

Undergraduate, community college student, or high school senior
attending college in the fall, interested in a major that is
within the computational sciences umbrella (leaves out few majors
as it includes all sciences, mathematics, engineering, finance,
statistics, etc.) with at least a 2.75 GPA, considering a career
in research and/or graduate school in your major, being a
US citizen or permanent resident, and graduating at least one
semester after completion of the REU.

Important Dates:
Sat March 1 2014: Application deadline.
Tue April 1 2014: Notification of decision.
Mon May 26 2014 through Fri Aug 1 2014: Program dates.

The research activities of the CCT are organized into five Focus
Areas:

* Core Computing Sciences
* Coast to Cosmos
* Material World
* Cultural Computing
* System Science and Engineering

These are broad, and sometimes overlapping areas where faculty from
diverse departments (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Civil
Engineering, Oceanography and Coastal Sciences, Petroleum
Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computing
Engineering, Music, Business, etc.) collaborate in
multidisciplinary projects.

Our REU students learn how to use some of the nation's largest
supercomputers, may participate in the setup and management of
large-scale simulations, and may take on an important role in the
analysis and visualization of the simulation results.

(2) LA-SiGMA REU
Interdisciplinary Research Experiences in Materials Science
http://reu.lasigma.loni.org/

This Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) project is a
nine or ten week program where students work collaboratively on a
wide variety of materials science projects.

Each student receives a stipend of $4,500, free housing in
university dormitories, and up to $400 in travel expenses.

Thirty students will be selected, five each at Louisiana State U,
Louisiana Tech U, Southern U at Baton Rouge, Tulane U,
U New Orleans, and Xavier U of Louisiana.

Qualifications:

Undergraduate, community college student, or high school senior
attending college in the fall, interested in a major that is
within the computational sciences umbrella (leaves out few majors
as it includes all sciences, mathematics, and engineering) with
at least a 2.75 GPA, considering a career in research and/or
graduate school in your major, and being a US citizen or
permanent resident.

Important Dates:

March 1, 2014: Application deadline.
April 1, 2014: Notification of decision.
End of May, 2014 through early August, 2014: Program dates vary by
university.

The research activities of LA-SiGMA are organized into these
Science Drivers:

* Electronic Materials
* Energy Materials
* Biomolecular Materials
* CyberTools and Cyberinfrastructure

These are broad, and sometimes overlapping areas where faculty from
diverse departments (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics,
Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computing Engineering,
Biomolecular Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, etc.) collaborate in
multidisciplinary projects.

Our REU students learn how to use some of the nation's largest
supercomputers, may participate in the setup and management of
large-scale simulations, and may take on an important role in the
analysis and visualization of the simulation results.

(3) LA-SiGMA RET: Interdisciplinary Research Experiences for
Teachers in Materials Science
http://ret.lasigma.loni.org/

This Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) project is a six week
program where teachers work collaboratively on a wide variety of
materials science projects for an inside look into materials
science research and computer-based modeling.

Teachers will meet world-class researchers, visit labs that are
closed to the public, and work on meaningful research first hand.

AND they will get ideas and projects to take back to their
classroom!

Eighteen teachers will be selected to do research at
Louisiana State U, Louisiana Tech U, Tulane U, or U New Orleans.

The total budget for each RET participant is $7,000, which includes
up to $1,000 in travel, the RET stipend, materials and supplies,
housing (if needed), meals, and materials and supplies for your
classrooms.

The specifics of the breakdown of the total amount among these
categories is left up to each host campus and may be determined in
consultation with the teachers.

Qualifications:

Middle school, high school, or community college teacher currently
teaching math, science, or technology, with a bachelor's degree in
math, science, education, or engineering, interested in materials
science and computational science, able to conduct on-site research
during the entire 6 weeks of the program, and who is a US citizen
or a permanent resident.

Important Dates:
March 1, 2014: Application deadline.
April 1, 2014: Notification of decision.
End of May, 2014 through early August, 2014: Program dates vary by university.
