Research Experiences for Undergraduates (“REUs”) are paid summer internships where students can work with faculty on research projects. These programs are funded by the National Science Foundation.
In an REU, you will
- Be part of a small group of 8-10 student researchers
- Work under the mentorship of a science faculty member
- Receive training in research methods and professional development
- Receive a stipend, room and board, and social activities
REUs are held all over the US, so there is one for you somewhere!
