National Science Foundation - Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)


Deadline: 2017-03-01 (National)

NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. 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 students work with the faculty and other researchers.


Students must be either citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. Students planning to go to graduate school should consider participating in any REU program to gain valuable experience.




Approximately $4,000. Some programs include assistance with housing and travel.
