NSF-Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

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 he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
