These include professional development programs such as enhancing presentation and writing skills as well as site visits to local research institutions including Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Eastman Chemical. REU students will receive a $5,000 stipend for the 10-week program, free housing on campus and up to $500 of reimbursement on eligible costs for travel to and from Knoxville.
