National Science Foundation: Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program!

Are you a freshman, sophomore or junior interested in summer 2012 research opportunities in natural sciences, engineering, or social sciences??? Learn about the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program!!!

The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds a large number of paid summer research opportunities for undergraduate students through its "Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)" program. The REU program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing NSF-funded research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program.

Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions.

The Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research is holding numerous 30 minute information sessions for students interested in learning about and applying for NSF REU Summer research placements - all sessions will be held in 2100D, McKeldin Library.
