NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)

Plan now for your REU application. These proposals are complex and require coordination across the university for planning and support. Our office stands ready to assist you. 

Full proposal deadline: August 24, 2016

Solicitation 13-542

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (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 research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. This solicitation features two mechanisms for support of student research: 

  1. REU Sites are based on independent proposals to initiate and conduct projects that engage a number of students in research. REU Sites may be based in a single discipline or academic department or may offer interdisciplinary or muti-department research opportunities with a coherent intellectual theme. Proposals with an international dimension are welcome. 
  2. REU Supplements may be included as a component of proposals for new or renewal NSF grants or cooperative agreements or may be requested for ongoing NSF-funded research projects. 
Undergraduate student participants in either REU Sites or REU Supplements must be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents of the United States.
