The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its Research Experiences for Undergraduates program. The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students 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 specifically designed for the REU program.
Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. There are dozens of REUs available from Astronomical Sciences to Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences. You can search for all REUs here.
Highlighted REUs from the SOC include:
– Interactive Biomaterials REU Program at Syracuse University
– Johns Hopkins Summer Biology REU
– Biodiversity REU at University of Hawai’i at Mānoa
– University of Wyoming Astronomy REU
