We are is actively monitoring the incidence of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the Indianapolis region. We have been asked how COVID-19 may impact upcoming events including our REU site 2021. IUPUI is following guidance from local health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding large gatherings, including CDC recommendations on preventing the spread of COVID-19.

At this time, our upcoming REU site 2021 will take place as planned. However, we may update the status of the REU site based on the COVID guideline and situation when it is close to the starting date of the REU site and keep all the applicants updated on the status of the REU site.
