National Science Foundation Science & Technology Center Summer Internships


The National Science Foundation (NSF) Science & Technology Centers (STCs) are at the forefront of cutting-edge research through partnerships among academic institutions, national laboratories, industrial organizations and/or other public/private entities. The NSF -STC Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) is an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on research experience in a cutting-edge field. There are currently 17 STCs nationally. Each Center has a specific research focus and you are encouraged to visit each of the Centerís websites to discover the uniqueness of their research goals and how your skills, experiences and interests align with their work. As an STC Undergraduate Scholar, your summer research experience will last eight to ten weeks. While varied between sites, your award will generally cover cost of transportation to the STC, stipend, room and board, and participation in STC planned events. Although your research will be conducted at one of the STCs, you will be a part of a unique national scientific community consisting of undergraduates, faculty, and graduate students.
