2017 Math REUs

This page contains a listing of the undergraduate math REUs that will run in the summer of 2017.  If you are interested in participating in an REU you should apply to several (there is high demand for positions, and not all of these programs will be funded to run); also make sure to follow the directions given at each REU (the ability to follow directions is part of the screening process for most programs).  Please send any additions or corrections to Steve Butler (butler@iastate.edu).

Note this list will continue to grow as more sites announce their programs.  Please keep visiting for up to the date information.

Be aware that while most applications deadlines are mid-February, some are earlier (e.g., Santa Fe Institute is often in early January).
