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

By using the web page, Search for an
REU Site, you may examine
opportunities in the subject areas supported by various NSF units.
Also, you may search by keywords to identify sites in particular
research areas or with certain features, such as a particular location.
Students must contact the individual sites for information and
application materials. NSF does not have application materials
and does not select student participants. A contact person and
contact information is listed for each site.
