(Last Updated: 11/17/2017)

Here you will find a list of Research Internships and Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) opportunities that may interest you. This is only a sampling of the hundreds of nationwide opportunities available. This page also includes links to several searchable databases of research opportunities.

REUs are an excellent way to learn about graduate research and to explore topics that interest you. REUs are usually located at universities or national labs and often include housing and transportation stipends in addition to the salary. Applications are usually due late fall or early winter term.

NOTE: Applications typically require reference letters and an essay. (Information about Letter of Recommendation Requests from Faculty.)  Be sure to start the process of applying several weeks before the application is due. Also, watch out for REUs at semester-system schools, that begin their summer term late in May. Be sure to contact the program administrator before applying, to find out if the program dates are flexible for students from schools on the quarter system.
