(Last Updated: 04/06/2016)

Here you will find a list of Research Internships and Research Internships 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.

Research Opportunities for Undergraduates (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. 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.

Portland State University REU

This program allows students to quickly engage in actual research work in a multidisciplinary environment, while training them in an important skill: microscopy and microanalysis techniques for materials characterization. The goal of the summer program is to provide research opportunities to students who do not have access to advanced facilities at their home institution. We strive to motivate students to pursue advanced degrees and research careers in science and engineering fields.

For the REU summer program, participants will receive a $4,000 stipend, and will engage in eight weeks of full-time (40 hours per week) research, as well as attending a week-long training course at the beginning of the program and practical seminars throughout the summer.

Still open - Applications began review on Jan. 5, 2016
