The National Science Foundation: Research Experience for Undergrads (REU)

 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.
