Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) at the University of Chicago
NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
The following are REUs that are currently offered at the University of Chicago:
- The University of Chicago Mathematics REU
- REU Site in Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology
- Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC)
- REU Site: Summer Research Projects in Contemporary Physics for Women and Minorities
Must abide by the guidelines delineated on the NSF REU website. Deadlines vary for each program, so check the webpage for the program you are interested in to confirm the deadline and application information.
Apply to the program directly through the host institution.
