This looks like a great opportunity to any interested undergrads who don't
have a summer job planned already.

> The Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) hosts a ten week Research

> 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:
> March 1, 2014: Application deadline.
> April 1, 2014: Notification of decision.
> May 26, 2014 through August 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, and 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.

> projects for an inside look into materials science research and
> computer-based modeling. Teachers will meet world-class researchers, visit

> Eighteen teachers will be selected to do research at Louisiana State
> University, Louisiana Tech University, Tulane University, or University of
> 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

> Qualifications:
> Middle school, high school, or community college teacher currently
