NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs)

Check out some of the research opportunities at organizations and universities participating in the "Research Experiences for Undergraduates" Sites program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The NSF website explains:

"An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location."

Take advantage of these opportunities! Begin by following the database provided below and searching for programs by your research topic area:
