Math REU Programs

This page contains a listing of the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REUs) aimed at mathematics students that will run in the summer of 2020. This list will continue to grow as more sites announce their programs. Please keep visiting for up to date information. The lists will be listed reverse chronologically in the order in which they are made available (i.e., the newest programs will be listed first).

In addition there are many REU sites which are related to mathematics (i.e., use mathematics in various applications) which can be found on another page.

Much of this information overlaps with what can also be found at the NSF maintained list of REU sites and the AMS list or REU summer programs.

Note that the NSF is working on creating a centralized application side and several REUs will be taking applications through the following site: NSFREU.org.
