About the REU Program


About Operation ETank

REU is currently unavailable for the 2015 year.

The Northern Illinois University is proud to host a NSF funded summer research program for undergraduates.The goal of this REU program is to operate an interdisciplinary research-based think tank (i.e., Operation ETank) to engage undergraduates on perspectives of sustainability with individual expertise in environment, energy, economy, and ethics.  

Eligible undergraduates interested in environmental issues, scientific research and potential for a career in science are encouraged to apply for this interdisciplinary summer research opportunity. Students will work directly with faculty mentors and participate in a number of regional workshops and seminars.
