About the Program

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in the study areas funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). REU Sites meaningfully engage groups of about 10 to 12 students in ongoing research programs or in research projects designed for the REU program. Students receive stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel.

Students supported through NSF must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its territories. Students who do not meet this requirement may still be considered for participation through other sources of funding available at the REU Sites.

Learn more about the REU program at the NSF website.

About the REU Website

This website helps students apply for the NSF REU Sites program. However, not all Sites participate in this online system. To view a list of participating Sites, please go to the “Sites” tab.

This website also enables principal investigators at REU Sites, NSF officers, and other authorized users to enter or access data.
