Topic Details


This workshop is for undergraduate STEM students who are interested in gaining research experience over the summer. Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) provide opportunities for undergraduate students to work in research at a host university during the summer. REU Sites are funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation and each site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the programs at the host university. Students are associated with a specific research project, where they work closely with faculty and other researchers. If accepted into an REU program, you will receive a stipend and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel.

During the workshop, participants will learn the benefits of participating in an REU, the ins and outs of finding a summer research opportunity, how to prepare a stellar application.
