NSF REU Program Information:
The NSF REU program is an alternative domestic option.
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.
SMU Summer STEM Research Program
is an intensive summer research program for students in STEM fields.
Current programs are planned for
the University of Glasgow, Scotland,
the University of Aberdeen, Scotland,
and the University of Dublin, Ireland.
The program provides intensive research experience,
and this is highly desirable for scholarship applications and graduate school applications.
