REU and SULI Status Report COVID-19

In summary, one student's SULI summer internship at Brookhaven National Laboratory has been changed to a remote format, which was seen as a positive outcome compared to cancellation. The status of other students' summer research internships is still uncertain, but there are indications that they may continue in some form. The Cornell Nanoscale Facility's REU program has been cancelled due to the difficulty of switching to a remote format, but it is hoped that most programs will be able to make the transition.

One student I mentor has reported that their SULI summer internship at Brookhaven National Laboratory has been modified to be remote (via internet) rather than in person. While there is some disappointment not being able to contribute to an experimental project in person, there is understanding that in the circumstance, this was a favorable outcome compared with cancellation.

The other students I mentor are still waiting on final word about their summer research internship opportunities, though they are getting positive signals that suggest a high probability of things moving forward one way or the other.

I thought it might be nice to have a thread here for folks to share information on statuses.

The Cornell Nanoscale Facility's REU program has been cancelled. Obviously working remotely is tricky for a program whose main benefit is access to a great academic cleanroom, but I hope that most REUs/internships are able to switch to being remote. I'm glad BNL has moved in that direction.
