Start your application process here. We use the CISE REU Common Application, which allows you to be considered for other REU Site opportunities (if you elect to do so).

This is Part 2 of the application process: you must also fill out the CISE REU Common online application form for Arizona, if you have not done so already. You can revisit this page at any time to upload your application materials, but please only fill out the form one time.

Update: If the form fails to submit and provides the error message(s) "Statement of Purpose Field is Required" and/or "Transcript Field is Required", then add your files but do not press the upload button. This is a documented problem with the latest version of our web server.
