NSF-sponsored program provides undergraduates the opportunity to participate
first-hand in research projects. REU programs take place during the summer in
locations all over the country. Students are granted stipends, and in some
cases assistance with housing and travel. Students who are in those groups
traditionally under-represented in science (women, members of under-represented
minorities, and those with disabilities) are particularly urged to apply.
