The NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students and supports active research participation by undergraduates in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects. This type of summer experience is important if you plan to pursue graduate studies. It can greatly strengthen your resume.
Each student accepted in an REU program is associated with a specific research project, where they work closely with faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends to cover living expenses and, in many cases, are provided assistance with housing and travel. To be eligible, you must be a US citizen or permanent resident.
By using NSF’s web page, Search for an REU Site, you can find opportunities across the U.S., in the subject areas supported by various NSF units. Also, you can search by keywords to identify sites by a particular research topic or with certain features, such as a particular location.
For information and application materials, contact the individual funded sites. NSF does not have application materials and does not select student participants. A contact person and contact information is listed for each site.
