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. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens
or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be
at either a US or foreign location.
Students must contact the individual site or program to apply. NSF does not have application
materials and does not select student participants.
Participants will receive travel funds, meals, housing and a stipend for participation.
Check each REU program site for specific information.
Application: Students must contact the individual site or program to apply. NSF does not have application materials and does not select student participants.
Eligibility: Individual sites may have additional eligibility requirements (e.g., number of undergraduate
years completed). Undergraduate student participants supported with NSF funds must
be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. High school
graduates who have not yet enrolled, and students who have already received their
bachelor's degrees, are not eligible.
Additional Information: Click on the Title of the Site in the "Site Information" column to go to the homepage
(if available) for that Site. Sites are ordered alphabetically by host institution.
Listing will change as new REU Site awards are made. Sites are added or deleted as
decisions are made on awards, and the list is updated periodically. Clicking on a
highlighted site title should direct you to the web page for more information on that
