Research Experiences for Undergraduates

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) serve as one of the best ways for students to gain invaluable research experience that can help them in the job search and graduate school application process. Every summer, universities across the country offer REUs that generally provide housing, transportation, and stipends for students admitted to their programs.

Listed below are REUs that are recommended by the Center for Diversity and Inclusion. As we become aware of new opportunities, they will be added to the list. If you have questions, or need assistance, please contact any of our assistant directors.

Opportunities are organized by their application deadline month.
