Research Experiences for Undergraduates (Summer REUs)

Interested in a really, really great summer job?  A summer REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) can be the experience of a lifetime.  REU participants typically spend several weeks at a host university working with a faculty mentor and other undergraduate students on a research problem.  Most living expenses are typically covered and most programs pay a stipend.

Programs are competitive, so students are encourage to apply to several and to apply early.  Most applications are due in early Spring, but some are due in late Fall.  Here is a link to the official National Science Foundation REU site:

The AMS (American Mathemataical Society) also maintains a list of REU's.

The Office of Undergraduate Research at APSU can help you locate REU's which match your interests and can assist you with the application process.
