Preparations for the 2018 NHERI REU program are underway. The application and instructions are available on the DesignSafe website. Already, undergraduates are applying for a chance to conduct hands-on research at NHERI’s experimental facilities.

NHERI researchers: please help us recruit a strong cohort of REU students. Share information about this tremendous opportunity in your undergraduate courses and with students who would benefit from obtaining research experience. Download our flyer and spread the word!

The curriculum for NHERI’s second annual Summer Institute is also taking shape. The 2018 event takes place June 4-6 at the downtown campus of the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Please help us spread the word to early career faculty, grad students, and engineering professionals interested in learning more about using NHERI network resources in their research grant proposals. The deadline to apply for a travel stipend is Feb. 15, 2018.
